CAIRO BOOKS's Description
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 Years of minimalism have been superseded by a riot of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.
