Description - Textiles of the Wiener Werkstatte: 1910-1932 by Angela Volker

Angela Volker's text gives succinct accounts of a range of topics, including the designs by Koloman Moser and Josef Hoffmann for Backhausen and Sohne prior to the foundation of the textile department in about 1910, methods of production, sales policy, customers and end use. A wealth of reproductions, many in colour, are supplemented by an exhaustive catalogue and artist biographies, as well as contemporary photographs of the textiles' uses in fashion and interior decoration, including exhibition pavilions and the Wiener Werkstatte's own showrooms. For designers, decorators or anyone simply in search of visual inspiration, this book is a goldmine and an amazing tribute to a period of astonishing creativity.
