Format: Paperback
Length: 0:50 Mins
The collection of prints and patterns in this book is put together by author Bowie Style, who's also the creator of the blog of the same name.

This book is as good as the website, perhaps better. All the beautiful and fun-looking artwork can now be conveniently flipped through. 120 artists are featured in this 304-page book so that's plenty of variety. You'll see a lot of creative designs that can be applied to all sort of materials and products.

I hope there will be more volumes in the future.

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

I bought this book based on the high recommendations on amazon. However, I was quite disappointed when it arrived. I am a printed textiles student and bought this book for inspiration. Although it is well laid out and has lots of pictures and information, all of the work in it is very similar. If you like quite flat digital 'cutesy' work (lots of flowers, hearts and cute looking animals) then this book would be great but this isn't really my taste and I found it didn't have much else in it. It is a very thorough book looking at designers who are currently producing a particular sort of work for a niche market but it does not give a broad overview of print or pattern, and looking through it the work all starts to look very samey.

A great snapshot of current trends in surface decoration. Some beautiful work and very useful to include the websites/contact details for the designers shown here, so that you can look up any particular favourites. I hope they produce the books regularly, as trends change and to introduce new designers. I enjoy the print pattern blog, and this book is a visual treat!

I was also dissapointed with the book. It has nothing to do with the blog: all the works are too similar and based on cutesy and flowers. Too much stereotype.

i bought this book yesterday. i have to agree with reviewer "beki" on here. the book is beautifully put together. obviously, a lot of love and time has gone into researching and putting the content together. 'bowie style' has done an impressive job there and should be very proud.

however - the work is very much of one style. at a glance it could all even be of the same person. i'd describe it as cute, girly, naive. it's all the same: flowers, animals with big eyes, pastel colours. don't even start counting the russian dolls.
it's a shame really - as i had hoped that this book would be a great source book on surface design, but actually it is just a reflection of one particular trend in surface design.

the content of the book is just a bit too girly for my taste. in fact, apart from about 3 or 4 guys - all of the designers in the book are girls!! if that doesn't say enough.....

the low rating of this book is not because it is a bad book - it is not, it is a beautiful book. just not what you'd expect it to be when you read about it.

I love this book! Even when I forget I have it I enjoy looking at it for inspiration. Presented well and visually stimulating it's great as a designer to be indulged in so many patterns and images. Thanks Bowie Style!

The seller service was good also. Sent packaged well and arrived safely. I loved getting such a big parcel through the post!
