Summary: ISBN: 0-295-98135-0 Language: English Description: Guatemala's woven textiles are admired for their vibrant colour combinations and boldness of design. This book reflects such richness and provides designers at all levels with inspiration for new and unexpected ways of using colour and pattern in their own work. Over twenty textiles are explored in a series of photographs to reveal a welth of motifs from fruit and flowers to birds and beasts, as well as abstract and geometric designs and, more unusually, the two combined to startling effect. 87 pages
