Very thorough book,
This review is from: Mastering the Art of Fabric Printing and Design (Hardcover)
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.
