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.)

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.

I love this book. If you are looking for inspiration, look no further. If you have a stash of fabric, a sewing machine and have a creative mind that never stays inside the box, this book will turn you on....

This book is a very suitable show-case for today's designers. There is one quibble only - the book is indexed by designer's first names rather than their last. Eccentric? But browse through this to find inspiration or your ideal design.

Love this book!. Really inspiring just like the first one. Anyone buying this would be happy with it, and great value for money. The cheapest site I've found selling it.

A great reference book for artists, designers and anyone else interested in pattern design. Nicely put together with a good selection of different graphic designers.

A good visual handbook but an explanation of the design an idea process on some of the projects would be helpful.
