Book Description

1 Sep 2008
Pattern can be derived from many sources, if we remember to look closely. While patterns have been around forever, there'sa recent movement, a tendency among designers, to allow patterns to animate their work with colorful and exuberant complexity. Over and Over: A Catalog of Hand-Drawn Patterns collects groundbreaking work from fifty of today's most talented designers who create patterns by hand and use them in their work in inventive and innovative ways. From Deanne Cheuk's patterns that adorn current fashion to those of Robin Cameron that explore her interest in art to Garrett Morin's patterns that arose from an exercise for a character called Eloie, the examples in this book push the boundaries of the traditional concept of what a pattern is. The selected works are often not an end result but the beginning of something else, of something bigger and broader. While the computer is sometimes involved in the production of patterns, the hand-drawn element is always evident in the uniqueness of these works. Featuring more than 250 vibrant and exciting patterns, Over and Over explores this magic on every single page and will inspire designers everywhere.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun and unique designs 24 Nov 2010
Length: 0:27 Mins
I've reviewed a few books on patterns, and they are always refreshing. Over and Over is not exception.

The beautiful cover enticed me to pick it up actually. It's a 256-page paperback with everything printed non-glossy.

There's a great variety of fun looking patterns, all hand-drawn by the 55 artists featured. Everything has that organic and traditional feel, as with hand drawn art. They are all visually captivating and unique.

If you work with patterns, this book should be a good resource for new ideas.

Other good books on patterns:
- Experimental Pattern Sourcebook: 300 Inspired Designs from Around the World
- Print and Pattern
- Constellations: An Inspirational Sourcebook of Repeat Patterns

3.0 out of 5 stars inspiring book 17 Jan 2012
Over & Over is a very inspiring book, although my copy was very poorly bound and the cover loosened within a few days.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Book 4 Feb 2011
Very well presented including excellent quality images and colour. Each artist has a small section of text to be discussed. This is the only area the book falls down on in my opinion, there is much more space allowed for a full reveiw or mini interview, yet it has not been done, instead just a small paragraph is given.

Overall however as a book to refer to, or simply to have on the coffee table it is well worth the money, just expect to go online for any information on the artists involved.

By abi
this is a beautiful collection of hand drawn patterns, which includes contemporary and more traditional repeat patterns, a great resource for any illustrator or pattern designer but also a gorgeous and enjoyable book to own if you appreciate pretty illustrated images!
