V&A PATTERN C.F.A. Voysey Karen Livingstone Designers Box-set

Stunningly repackaged in a limited edition box-set, some of the most popular V&A Pattern series titles – William Morris, Walter Crane and Owen Jones – are accompanied by a new title that celebrates the innovative and inspirational work of C.F.A. Voysey (1857–1941). Voysey was an architect who produced a prolific range of pattern designs over a career that spanned 50 years. His style, characterized by bold repeats, natural forms, flat tints of colour and a pared back simplicity, is quickly identifiable. Readers will delight in his patterns, which retain their original freshness. Karen Livingstone is Director of Masterplan and Estate at the Science Museum. Her previous publications include Essential Arts and Crafts (V&A 2005) and International Arts and Crafts (V&A 2005).
