It has a lot of nice patterns, but they are not aligned, so it is very hard if you want to use them for printing fabric and the like.

Excellent designs and information from where they are taken from. The CD is an additional bonus giving the viewer the chance to look into the patterns in more depth. Also a useful teaching aid.

Personal preference 24 April 2010
By Mary J. Bedy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Please note I have not used the CD that came with this book, I'm only giving my opinion of the designs. I disagree with the reviewer that says the color combinations are "sickly and spooky". Everyone's taste in design is different. I purchased this book as a source for inspiration for my own designs, and I'm really drawn to the muted browns, tans, teals and grays in several of these designs. There are some more colorful designs as well. If you like stylized designs, Art Nouveau, Art Deco, simplified and sometimes symbolic representations of floral designs, birds and leaves, I think you will like this book. But, as I said previously, everyone's taste is different, so look through the pages you can view here before purchasing and see if those few pages appeal to you.

I believe you will either love the designs in this book or they will leave you flat, as they are quite taste specific. I intend to collect the other books by this author as well.

We are a graphic design firm always researching patterns for the products we work with. These patterns provided a great collection of inspiration in intriguing colors and pattern combinations. Great for research, recommend all the lines in the series and would purchase more.

Pattern Sourcebook: Nature 2: 250 Patterns for Projects and Designs 12 Jun. 2012
By Sofia - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I want a book to help me in my illustration designs, so I bought this book to have some graphic elements that I can use.
The book is great, well printed, but in the CD the information doesn't help at all. They promote the book with the CD but you almost can't use it. The images are not workable, is the same you download an image from a internet or a picture you get. I disappointed with that.
I still recommended the book as a book, but don't buy it for the CD.

I will definitely purchase other books in the series. It is everything I had expected it to be. It is a good addition to my graphic design tools.
