Pattern is everywhere. Years of minimalism have been superseded by a riot of colour and shape, whether on walls, fabrics, clothes or signage. Print and Pattern is a visual celebration of contemporary surface design.
Compiled by the creator of the cult blog of the same name, this truly international 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, designer-makers and craftspeople, graphic designers, illustrators and fashion and textile designers.
