From ancient Celtic carvings to the bold geometrical prints of the 1980s, 1,000 Patterns collects 1,000 designs, showcases them in full color, and tells the story of each. The scrollwork of ancient Greece, the tartans of Scotland, and the eye-popping shapes of op art are just the beginning. This comprehensive presentation offers the best examples from important eras throughout the centuries and from every continent. Color plates are paired with expert commentary about the language, history, and artistic movements represented by each, and how these symbols evolved through the ages. Arranged by period and style, it's easy to access both ancient and contemporary decorations at a glance. A handy pattern finder makes it quick work to locate and cross-reference any motif or design in the book. For designers, artists, crafters, and anyone with an interest in art and ornamentation, 1,000 Patterns is a valuable reference and an appealing source of inspiration.
