I've been a fan of Laurie Wisbrun's designs for quite a while so I had great expectations for this book and I wasn't disappointed. This book is great at being succinct in its explanations with enough information to be truly helpful and not too much to overwhelm. It broke down the process of creating, printing and selling fabric so well and gave tips, tricks and hints along the way. I don't make it through many of these types of books but this one kept me engaged from beginning to end. It's given me a lot to think about and allowed me to draft a plan for my own designs.

I really like that it showed me how to do repeats. I am using basic photo software (PSE11), but with her instructions, I was able to do repeats that I didn't think I could do. I am only 3/4 way through but I thought it has been very informative. I had never designed fabric before but now, within two or three weeks, I have designed 6 different fabrics and adapted them to three difference color families.

I'm new to surface pattern design and have bought a couple of good books on the topic. This is excellent.

There is so much in this book to learn - it is angled at digital printing of surface patterns but does cover other printing methods in good detail. It covers the main players in digital printing retailing (like Spoonflower) - as well as gives good instruction on how to create different pattern types (such as repeat patterns, random patterns etc) suitable for printing.

It also has some really great interviews with a range of designers, some of whom I am aware of, some of whom were new to me - always a good thing to get variety.

I would definitely recommend this to people looking to take a step up from basic fabric printing to creating commercial, usable fabrics for selling.

Great for beginners. However, beginner I am not so it
was really not enough for me. If you are a true beginner
I'm sure you'd get alot out of this book!

I previously purchased another fabric design book that I thought was very good. However, this book is GREAT and even more helpful. I'm a newbie to fabric design, but not to technology, and I'm happy that this book covers both areas. I think though, that it's not just for newbies, but also for those who are experienced 'old-school' designers who are looking to become more tech savvy. Or like me: the creative tech savvy fashion/graphic designer/artist -that is new to fabric/textile design. I'm almost finished with the book, but will keep it on hand as a reference.

p.s. I almost forgot to mention that the binding on this book is textured and I love it. It 'told' me even before I opened it: "I'm special!".

I am happy about, so far about what I am reading. I browsed through the chapters to see if it has information for what I bought it for. It seems to have every thing I need to learn. I'm not finished with it. I'll have to make a complete rating later. The Photography is great.
