I said it before and I'll say it again- Oh, how I *love* this book!
"Print & Pattern Volume 2" is much like Volume 1: It's a beautiful, THICK (dictionary thick!) book full of large, glossy images of all sorts of patterns and motifs- everything from beautiful florals to abstracts to vintage designs to kawaii cute. Anytime I need inspiration, or just need a quick distraction and a burst of energy, I flip through this book. There is also information on each designer, including their websites, so you can see even more.
This book is an invaluable resource to me as an artist, as well as a delight to just flip through. I'm seriously tempted to buy a second copy to leave on the living room table because everyone winds up pulling it from my shelf in my studio and flipping through it. It's just beautiful.
If need inspiration or just visual joy, this is the book for you. And what a great gift for everyone from young people (drawing inspiration is endless and it is eye candy) to... well, anyone interested in color!
