Fabric, the Fired Earth Book of Natural Texture

Fabric, the Fired Earth Book of Natural Texture by Elizabeth Hilliard and Stafford Cliff, will be available from 18 October. Cliff, who designed and co-authored the book, says it is not intended to be a ‘how to’ work. ‘It looks at the larger picture of the incredible range of fabrics that are available and is intended to fuel ideas,’ he explains. The book is simply designed, he says, with photography playing an integral part (front cover, with photography by Dominic Blackmore, pictured). ‘The design uses a series of full-page pictures, a combination of images of real life and fabrics, to illustrate how fabric reflects the wider world,’ according to Cliff. Published by Chrysalis, the book will cost £25.
