Charles Rennie Mackintosh: Textile Designs, Billcliffe, Roger
1 Billcliffe, Roger Charles Rennie Mackintosh: Textile Designs
San Francisco Pomegranate Artbooks 1993 1566403146 / 9781566403146 First Hard Cover Fine Fine Quarto 
112 pp. Small bookseller's sticker (The Arts Bookshop, Armadale) to front pastedown. As new. More than 75 colour plates. Bibliography. "One of the reasons that Charles Rennie Mackintosh's work with textiles is not so widely known -- unlike his architecture, furniture and, lately, his watercolours -- is that very few of his fabrics can now be bought. Fortunately, a large group of his original drawings for the textile firms of Foxton's and Sefton's, designed during his stay in Chelsea between 1915 and 1923, have survived in the Hunterian Art Gallery at Glasgow University, the Victoria Museum and the British Museum. In this book, Roger Billcliffe shows that with the furniture and interior designs made after 1915 the textile designs form a whole new style for Mackintosh."
