Journal of Design and Manufactures

Part of the University of Glasgow library's website, this 'Book of the Month' online exhibition features volume one of `The Journal of Design and Manufactures'. The library holds four of the six volumes published by Chapman and Hall between 1849 and 1852 under the editorship of Henry Cole and Richard Redgrave, with the aim of improving British standards of design and manufactures. This online exhibition includes a number of colour images of the actual samples of textiles and wallpapers bound into the volume, as well as examples of the steel-engraved illustrations and samples in situ on the page.
