I thought I’d start out the week with a look into the history books — what I found was this print by Maria Likarz Strauss (1893-1956), a prolific textile designer of the Wiener Werkstatte. It’s little swatches like this that express the vibrancy of previous eras and remind me that “modern design” is not a recent invention. For more on Strauss and the Vienna Secessionists click here (an out-dated but still relevant press release from The Textile Museum).
