Book Description

19 Oct 2009
The book is aimed at anyone with an interest in surface design and pattern whether they are students, hobbyists or professionals. 400 images from the last 100 years or so are presented with informative captions and ordered aesthetically. The images will be drawn from a wide variety of styles, art movements and countries of origin to give an overview of pattern design from the beginning of the last century to the present day. Images include fabric designs and wallpaper patterns primarily, plus some ceramic and other decorative patterns where appropriate. The patterns are chosen from a number of sources, including the archives of colleges, museums and private collections. An opening introduction discusses the predominant key themes that are relevant to the subject of pattern design.

Format:Paperback
An interesting and varied selection of patterns arranged by colour. However, all of these patterns are copyright unlike other sourcebooks which provide material to use freely.
