5.0 out of 5 stars a useful resource, 24 Dec. 2010
By 
This review is from: V&A Patterns: The Fifties (Hardcover)
What I wanted was a selection of patterns that gave a flavour of the Fities - and this little book amply provided that. The small amount of text is relevant and informative; there are over 60 colour reproductions of textile and fabric designs in the book itself and 70 patterns on the CD which comes with the book - some of them repeats of the ones in the book.
The CD should open in most image software.
While you are invited to use the images as inspiration and a resource,you are also asked to respect the V&A's intellectual property. Whilst permission should be sought for commercial use, the museum's commitment to design means that "securing permissions should be reasonable and quick".
As an initial dip into Fifties patterns, I think this is really excellent value. The short bibliography looks helpful.
