History & Design Books

History & Design Books

Linger in this section of the Book Shop to browse the fascinating selection of books about the history, theory and traditions associated with the textile crafts. You will also find a selection of books to provide inspiration for your designs, including books about understanding colour, structure and form.

Other books delve into the past to take us on a journey back in time so that we may understand how techniques and materials have evolved while other titles bring us right into the present to share contemporary design ideas and developments.

You may also be interested in the magazine Piecework which explores the history of textiles through historical documents, memories and interviews. The magazine examines textile items from around the world and introduces us to the personal stories behind the featured items. Alongside this treasure trove of information, the magazine includes projects inspired by the featured items and use the same techniques. See our Magazines section for information on the current issue.
