I came across a beautiful book in our local cut price bookstore, Liberty: British Colour Pattern.
A hardback book that comes with its own 'sleeve' and contains paper inserts and fold outs presented in an archive style. It was released Dec 2013 so I have no idea why it was at the bargain price of £14.99 but it ended up in my stocking and I was very pleased.
There is a particularly interesting sec ion later in the book covering the Liberty Art fabrics and the seasonal prints that come out for a limited period and can be exciting, original- at times a bit weird but always creatively interesting- success has to come with a little failure to create an energy and desire for new things in the next season.
I thoroughly recommend it. I find it such a delight to dip into. If you have a branch of The Works near you, it is definitely worth popping into. The craft/sewing section contains many familiar titles and there are some great bargains- this caught my eye, I remember it blog hopping about. You can see sewing titles here and there are knitting and crochet too. I do love a bargain, especially one that involves Liberty.
