Print is an exciting and dynamic design area, with new analogue and digital technologies opening up a wealth of creative possibilities for designers in textile and non-textile media. Witty, hyperreal and luxurious print designs are being used by fashion designers and in interiors, while fine artists are harnessing the latest technology in their work to stunning effect. This showcase of contemporary print designs from around the world is divided into three key areas: fashion, interiors and art.

In fashion, the book features innovative print designs in haute couture, prêt-a-porter and accessories from companies such as Prada, Issey Miyake and Vivienne Westwood. The interiors section shows surfaces and interior products such as wallpaper, upholstered furniture, fabric hangings and floor coverings, and features a wide range of designers from Marimekko in Finland to Anna Glover in the UK. Fine-art prints and experimental work from international artists and designers such as Cristian Zuzunaga and Liberty Art Fabrics are represented in the final part.
