   schema:description "Jean Moss takes us on a journey through the decorative arts of the twentieth century, sharing her insights and design inspirations. The decorative arts are "a wonderful source for the knitwear designer: architecture, theater, furniture, ceramics, textiles, jewelry, fashion, and posters all carry the distinctive signatures of their time and creator." The designs take on extra meaning as we read Jean's often informative, occasionally quirky commentary. The journey starts at the turn of the century with the opulence and sinuous arabesques of the Belle Époque. Moving on to the twenties, these curving lines turn sleek and sophisticated with the growth of Art Deco. Our next stop revisits the vibrant offbeat styles of Pop Art in the swinging sixties. Finally, to mark the new millennium, Jean looks with confident eclecticism to sources as diverse as ethnic symbolism and fisher ganseys to create a timeless capsule of contemporary classics that are a pleasure to knit. --From publisher description."@en ;
