After a goldmine of cultural and subconscious information, the history of patterns parallels and informs the history of humanity. After decades of modern minimalism and clear lines, people are enjoying a return to more playful design, rich in colors and textures. Pattern-making and pattern design, in particular, has made a major comeback as a way to embellish a surface with their use often displaying unexpected depths. Indeed, we have witnessed a revival in enriched, traditional motifs, and seen them applied in thought-provoking ways, in an unlimited variety of designs and textures. The use of new computer technologies has brought about surprising, often intricate results, on an aesthetic as well as conceptual level. In the most recent years, counter reactions to that which is digital, are visible in the work of crafty designers who embrace illustration and a hand-made, do-it-yourself aesthetic, while taking full advantage of the versatility and speed computer programs can afford them. Cutting-Edge Patterns and Textures is a stimulating book featuring full-page, color images of inspired patterns and boasts an eclectic array of styles from all around the world. This book is destined to become a desktop reference for professional and amateur designers alike.
