Nowhere is this more evident than in the world of fashion and textile design. Vera Neumann, better known simply by her first name and distinctive signature, created clothing and textiles that are as fashionable today as they were in the 1960s and 70s when the artist was at the height of her career. Designing for the average woman, Vera was known for her bold geometric designs and bright, splashy florals. With over 500 color photographs, this book documents Veras vibrant scarves, blouses, dresses, sleepwear, kitchen textiles, bed linens, and dishes, some of which are shown in original packaging. Included is a biography of Vera as well as a price guide, bibliography, and shopping resources. This first-ever guide to the famous Vera will appeal to collectors, textile and design students, and all who love retro fashion.
