Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With this fabulous book-and-CD combination, anyone can produce personalized gift wraps and stationery; generate original templates for stencils, needlework, and stained-glass art; and create stunning designs for a huge variety of uses. All that is needed is a computer (PC or Mac) and an image-manipulation program (such as Adobe Photoshop); the simple step-by-step tutorials show even the novice how to proceed.

The 100 striking repeat patterns are infinitely adaptable to home crafters and professional designers alike. Each pattern is included on the copyright-free CD as a layered file that can be easily repeated, recolored, added to, subtracted from, and scaled up or down by the user. Patterns are grouped by type-geometrics, plaids and stripes, florals and foliage-and are inspired by everything from Islamic mosaic to Renaissance wall ornament, from Indian paisley to Pop art. A superb tool for teaching the basics of pattern design, this package is also a rich stimulus for the visual imagination.

Book News Annotation:

With this CD-ROM/book combination and an image-manipulation program, crafters and creative professionals can develop an infinite number of repeat patterns useful for something as simple as wrapping paper or as complex as a commercial software product. The program includes the ability to re-color, scale up or down, remove or alter elements, or create new patterns. The 100 originals are inspired by everything from geometric mosaics to pop art, with the Renaissance, Persia, Art Nouveau and Art Deco thrown in for good measure.
