Pat Albeck: Queen of the Tea Towel

Matthew Rice

Description

Pat Albeck, who died in 2017, was a prolific and well-known textile and homewear designer. She's most famous as being 'Queen of the Tea Towel', particularly with the National Trust, and worked with them to produce tea towels from the 1970s to the present day.

The book shows 100 of Pat's tea towel designs, and her son Matthew Rice (also an illustrator and designer) gives a fascinating insight into the design process for each towel. The tea towels include National Trust houses and gardens and her iconic calendar designs, as well as showcasing her unique, retro and quintessentially British textile design and illustration style.
