Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

If you are an artist or designer, craftworker or art student, the price of this volume may be the best investment you've ever made. It contains an incredibly rich collection of bright, modern design material that is immediately usable—all selected especially for this volume from historical periods that are popular today, and from such favorite styles as op art and Art Nouveau. And everything in this book is copyright free! Just select the designs you need, use them alone or in combination with other elements, apply them intact or altered to your needs, and repeat individual items in form patterns.

All the designs are in line, and can be used as they are or colored to achieve new optical effects. Included are designs based on sprigs of flowers, fruits and vegetables, birds, animals, and scenic; ancient motifs; Pennsylvania Dutch designs; folk art of Mexico, South America, and Scandinavia; dozens of paisley patterns; op art stripes, plaids, and geometrics; Art Nouveau florals and medallions; designs suggestive of cross-stitching, antique valentines, snowflakes, and quilt patterns. There is almost no limit to the ways in which this material can be used. It is suitable for textiles, wallpapers, commercial packaging, crewel-work and needlework patterns, ornamental tiles and chinaware, stencil patterns, leather work, belt buckles, and jewelry, book and record jackets. In fact, it will be useful in almost any instance where illustrative material is needed.
