One of the reasons that Charles Rennie Mackintosh's work with textiles is not so widely known - unlike his architecture, furniture and his watercolors - is that very few of his fabrics can now be bought. Fortunately, a large group of his original drawings for the textile firms of Foxton's and Sefton's, designed during his stay in Chelsea between 1915 and 1923, have survived. In this book, the author shows that with the furniture and interior designs made after 1915 the textile designs form a whole new style for Mackintosh. From the Old House Journal reference library.
