English architect and designer C.F.A. Voysey (1828–1912) produced a wide range of textiles and other patterns over a career spanning 50 years. His style is characterized by bold repeats, natural forms, flat tints of color, and a pared-back simplicity, and is quickly identifiable. Readers will delight in his patterns, which still retain their original freshness today.
