I loved these designs as a child - we had them at school and at home.

As recently as a couple of years ago I was looking for these online and could only find them in second hand bookshops, partially completed and at astronomical prices.

I'm so glad to see that these wonderful designs are being published again and I'm looking forward to receiving my pattern pad for me and my family.

In the meantime ALTAIR now have a website where you can colour their patterns online - they are just as I remember them!

Thank you Amazon and Altair for allowing me to relive my childhood. I can't wait to try these designs out on my boys.

My children love colouring and drawing, and my son especially loves patterns and tesselation.

I tried searching for pattern books, vaguely remembering having some when I was little (in the 70s). And I found this series and immediately recognised the name and patterns.

This was my favourite pattern book when I was little. The patterns are fantastic, and you can look at them and see different shapes to colour in - eg spirals made out of hexagons etc. The possibilities are practically infinite.

There are only a few different patterns (maybe 5-7?) which are repeated throughout the book, but you colour each one in completely differently so its not a problem.

Its not just for kids either, you could easily while away a quite evening or two colouring in one of these sheets - but if you're a grown up try and stay inside the lines :)

Highly recommended for the little artist in your family. I'll be getting the rest of the series for sure.

We had these pads in the mid-1970s and I used to love colouring them in and that is the only reason I ordered them.
I then found myself buying crayons and felt pens and wallowing in my distant 10-yr old self and having a wonderful time, removed from any responsibility as I played with them… highly recommended.

Bought this for my niece for Christmas. I have yet to hear how she likes it, but it was great to see the designs and paper quality that I remember and loved from my childhood.

I love these as a child and wanted to get my children into them too.
I ended up buying them for other members of my family so we were all doing them.
Quick delivery many thanks

Altair Design books don't change, except perhaps they have got smaller... or maybe that is me growing up?
I have fond memories of spending hours colouring in the geometric patterns. I'm sure it will have the same appeal for my art-mad niece today.
