8 of 9 people found the following review helpful By Helen Brown on May 7, 2008
Format: Paperback
The cover is fun. It's a great size, but the content leaves a lot to be desired. The reproductions are poor. Many of the images are so small I can barely make out what they are. Some are not even patterns, just pictures. Although the book is full of images, there are only a few artists represented and their work is shown over and over (not the kind of pattern I was seeking). And the commentary is useless at best. This is not a book of the great work that is being done out there in the design world. Having said all that, there are some lovely patterns and interesting ideas here. I just wish I didn't have to work so hard to find them and learn from them.

Format: Paperback
This book has few words and many patterns. There are five sections, each devoted to a different type of pattern. Although I found I only really consistently liked the conversational, retro and organic patterns, I thought the range of different patterns and different mediums (digital, textile, hand-drawn, etc) was great. It would have been nice to have a little more information on how each subset of patterns has been developing, what the patterns themselves are used for, who some of the major players are and other relevant information.

The physical package itself is very attractive, compact, has a good weight and feel and lovely paper stock.

This book is a visual feast of contemporary pattern design. It provides inspirational information about contemporary design trends divided into five style categories including "Conversational, Abstract, Retro, Geometric, and Organic Patterns." I especially like the book's cover featuring the blue and black butterflies contrasted against the vibrant yellow background.
