A long established source of inspiration, the Victoria & Albert Museum is packaging some of its most popular patterns in a series of pocket size books. Due out in July, the books offer designers portable source guides and introduce other fans of design to key styles and periods. Four eras (or types) of pattern are represented in the initial set – William Morris, Indian Florals, The Fifties, and Digital Pioneers. Pre-order now at the V&A Shop.
