On the shelf

Fabric designer John Robshaw takes readers on a globe-trotting journey through his artistic training and creative processes in John Robshaw Prints: Textiles, Block Printing, Global Inspiration and Interiors.


Robshaw, known for putting an updated twist on exotic fabric designs, takes readers to India, Indonesia, Thailand and elsewhere to describe the evolution of his art and share an inside look at the traditional techniques used to create his high-end fabrics.


In photos and words, he describes the painstaking processes involved in block printing, batik, indigo dying and ikat weaving. He also shares pictures of some of his designs and shows them used in room settings, many in his own home.


John Robshaw Prints is published by Chronicle Books and sells for $40 in hardcover.
