1940s Pattern





These are all scans from a wonderful book I found the other day called, Pattern and Design by N. I. Cannon (Lund Humphries & Co., London, 1948). The author is giving a fairly conservative account of pattern design and uses his students work throughout as examples. I just thought that they are now so wonderfully evocative in both pallette and style of the 1940s/50s.
