Pattern is back, and what better way to celebrate its revival than with a cool compendium of the best pattern design from around the globe? This exciting book showcases some of the most innovative pattern designs around, including graphics, textiles, fashion, furnishings, ceramics, tiles, wallpaper and stationery. While many of the designers featured work commercially, others are independent designer-makers whose work is cutting edge even though, or perhaps because, they don't follow conventional techniques or disciplined structures. Designers include Hanna Werning, Skuirtgun, Delaware, Timorous Beasties, Jessie Whipple and Lena Corwin. Natural, figurative, funky, abstract, pixel-based, graphic or retro patterns are all featured in this inspiring visual feast of the best work to emerge in recent years.
