Product Description

About the Author

Marie Perkins started the Print & Pattern blog in her spare time whilst researching for mood boards in her job as a textile designer. Creating trend books for leading UK stores meant she needed images to demonstrate print trends, and after finding no dedicated blogs at that time decided to start one. The blog soon became a must-read for those in the industry. Marie is herself a successful surface designer working under the name Inkjet Designs. Her work has featured in numerous magazines and newspaper articles.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful 19 Mar 2012
Length: 1:25 Mins
This is a nice second volume to the first Print and Pattern book.

There are so much content on the Print and Pattern blog that it's not surprising a second book came out. It's still 304 pages so that's a lot of work to look at.

The prints and patterns in the book are beautiful. They are colourful and fun to look at. Most are vector style but the variety is immense. They all come with short artist profiles.

Great book for designers, illustrators and those who like crafting.

(There are more pictures of the book on my blog. Just visit my Amazon profile for the link.)

4.0 out of 5 stars A large helping of print & pattern inspiration 12 Oct 2011
This book is the perfect companion to the Print & Pattern blog. It's beautifully presented and the clean, crisp layout allows the many prints and patterns within to shine. Each page features a designer (from Amy Butler to Marimekko, Rob Ryan to Cosmo Cricket) and a few prints that represent their catalogue of work. Along with this is a very brief history that details their training, collaborations, and where their work has appeared. My favourite detail in this though is the short list of their own design heroes that each artist has been asked to provide - it's lovely to read where who they've looked to with admiration or for inspiration.

It's an excellent book for any pattern affectionado or as a reference for illustrators and designers. The only reason that I haven't given this book five stars is because stylistically the majority of designers chosen to feature in the book have a similarly modern, bold, block-colour look as one another, and while this is entirely in keeping with the Print & Pattern blog aesthetic, it does mean that its scope isn't as wide and all-encompassing as it might have been.
