MoDA has around 40,000 original designs on paper. Most of the designs are for wallpapers and textiles. They were created by the Silver Studio, which sold them to manufacturers around the country, between 1880 and the early1960s.
These designs are in a variety of media, including pencil, inks, charcoal, pastels and gouaches.
Middlesex Illustration student Sarah Kadrnka made a short film inspired by some of MoDA's Silver Studio designs
