Artist - William Kilburn

From all the prints I saw in the 'British Textiles' book, it was Kilburn's that were my favourite. He was an illustrator for William Curtis' Flora Londinensis around the late 1700s/early 1800s, and a leading designer of his time. I adore the detail in his prints, the delicate nature of his drawing style, his often bold use of colour and the way he brings unusual objects into his work, such as bright coral inter-twined with flowers.
