Experimental Pattern Sourcebook by Jackie Herald
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


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.
