This collection features 300 designs from the newest generation of pattern designers who are experimenting with new formats to create the most eclectic and inspiring collection of patterns in a single volume. Many designers are fusing hidden messages in their pattern designs which ultimately show up in a diverse range of materials, not just dye or pigments on fabric. A pattern can be lovely looking or perfectly fitting on the thing that it covers - but it gets more interesting if it gives an annotation on the object to which it is connected. This book features patterns from a diverse range of designers from all over the globe who are pushing the boundaries of textiles and printed materials. The patterns featured are delightful and unexpected.
