FABRICS: Celia Birtwell

'Celia Birtwell'recently published by Quadrille 
is a book about the wife of Ossie Clarke, David Hockney's muse and unmatched fabric designer. The book is very evocative of the 60's and 70's
The fabrics are too good to become dated.  I have used them frequently in my work and they always make me smile with pleasure...
