Allegra Hicks : An Eye for Design

$45.00
- +

Hicks is a London-based designer--of fashion, fabrics, and accessories. Her work is showcased here in 200 full-page photos accompanied by lyrical text in which she expresses thoughts and feelings about design, nature, and her sources of inspiration. Some of the photos, in fact, are of nature--details or landscapes or animals--echoed in her work, shown on facing pages. Many of the photos of fabrics are up-close details with small areas of focus and surrounding areas out of focus, thus evoking a sense of texture and sensuousness. Designers or teachers of design seeking inspiration will appreciate this unusual exploration of creativity. The book measures 10.5x11.5". Annotation ©2011 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
