Print and Pattern (英语) 平装 – 2010年3月24日
Pattern is everywhere. Years of minimalism have been superseded by a riot of color and shape, whether on walls, fabrics, clothes, or signage. Print & Pattern is a visual celebration of contemporary surface design.
Compiled by the creator of the cult blog of the same name (http://printpattern.blogspot.com/), this book documents the work of the best surface designers from around the world and features products that have been embellished with a surface print or pattern, including graphics, cards, gift wrap, stationery, textiles, ceramics, badges, stickers, and wallpaper.
As well as successful commercial designs, the book also showcases previously unseen pattern designs from designers' portfolios. Accessible but with a cool edge, the book will appeal to surface designers, graphic designers, designer-makers and craftspeople, illustrators, and fashion and textile designers.

"Print & Pattern" is a beautiful, THICK (dictionary thick!) book full of large, glossy images of all sorts of patterns and motifs- everything from beautiful florals to abstracts to vintage designs to kawaii cute. Anytime I need inspiration, or just need a quick distraction and a burst of energy, I flip through this book. There is also information on each designer, including their websites, so you can see even more.
This book is an invaluable resource to me as an artist, as well as a delight to just flip through. I'm seriously tempted to buy a second copy to leave on the living room table because everyone winds up pulling it from my shelf in my studio and flipping through it. It's just beautiful.
There's nothing in this book but cute stuff, very beautiful and lots of DIY (Do It Yourself) inspiration.
If cute & trendy doesn't interest you even a little then this is not a book for you.
