Both photos taken from: Shock of the Old: Christopher Dresser’s Design Revolution
Just another quick post.Please excuse that these are instagram photos, but I’m just too excited not to share. For my History of Modern Design class, we were required to choose a 19th century designer to do some research on and write an annotated bibliography about. While not to thrilled about writing the bibliography, I’m so glad that I discovered Christopher Dresser.
I’m literally sitting here in the library with a pile of books about him. These are just patterns (which I’m the most obsessed with)—but I’d suggest at least doing a google image search on him. It’s pretty amazing how contemporary and clean his work is.
Also exciting news, I’m working on my portfolio site: hellolea.com.
