I have long loved cloth from the 1950's. From bark cloth to polished cottons, from atomic designs to the beautiful brush stroke swirls of botanical inspired prints. I have appreciated them all. Lately I have come across these examples which I call garden path cloth. It appears these have been printed with individual blocks to form a crazy path or puzzle like design. I did a quick web search earlier and could not find much information and will have to delve a little deeper to find out more about the techniques used. If anyone has any info I would warmly welcome it. I really like the simplicity and boldness of these prints and the designers apparent sense of freedom and playfulness. Some of them would make great lino cuts.
