A beautiful illustrated book on the wonderful domestic art of the tea towel, celebrating the best designs past and present. Invented in the 19th century, tea towels were known originally as kitchen towels.

This book gives a visual history of this essential textile item, showcasing the best tea towel design over the decades. With full page images and close up details, the book has 100 illustrated tea towels from the 1930s to today. It features designers Lucienne Day, Emma Bridgewater, Pat Albeck, Cath Kidston and Angela Harding, plus the best of designs from key retail stores such as Heals and Selfridges. A beautiful book on a piece of textile art that is much loved and will be appreciated by those interested in homeware and textile design.
