The sudden flurry of color and rapid spread of busy prints is the result of the new ease of computer printing in fabric design. Pioneered by Brazilian/British design duo Basso & Brooke, the hyper-real digital technique has spread not just among the small but innovative studios but also to more traditional fashion houses such as Chanel and Armani. Following a discussion of how the current techniques have revolutionized hundreds of years of screen-printing, The Print Revolution is organized by an A-Z of keynote designers operating at this cutting edge of fashion. Accompanied by fashion photography, catwalk imagery, and close-up details of prints and patterns, and crucially supplemented by the designer's own notebooks, impressions, quotations and influences, the book is an invaluable reference as well as a visual delight of the inspirations and creations that have given rise to the current explosion of interest in textile design.
