Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Print & Pattern (Paperback)
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.
