Vienna Workshop kaft

From Pomegranate publishers we received a coloring book which they published recently in cooperation with the famous Smithsonian Design Museum: “Designs from the Vienna Workshop coloring book”. We thank Pomegranate for his.

On the Internet the following information about this book can be found:
One hundred years ago, the Vienna Workshop was a booming artists’ cooperative. Known as Wiener Werkstätte in German, the workshop thrived from 1903 to 1932, and its designers produced art that was used to create fabrics, furniture, clothing, postcards, and so much more—nearly anything you could think of, as long as it was of quality design.

A few of the Vienna Workshop’s many artists created the designs you see here. Even the most complex drawings were often made into patterns that could be used in myriad ways. Sometimes designs would also be produced in a series of colorways, showing all the beautiful potential that can be found when an artist starts with one set of shapes or outlines. As you color, think of all the different ways that your new design could be used. We’ve even left a page at the back of the coloring book blank so that you can devise your own design. (meer…)
