I think my favorite of the books, so far, is the Spitalfields Silks volume. In it, beautiful woven silks rub elbows with gridded, painted designs - a nice juxtaposition, and a testament to how lovely the planning stage can be.
Each book comes with a cd for personal use - if you run low on stationery, I think some of the patterns would make beautiful print-at-home cards. The books in the series are all nice, I'd love a little row of them on my shelves!
