This is a mixture of wonderful, stylized pattern templates. There are 1000 of them in so many styles, fashions and designs. Pattern Motifs is an excellent resource for anyone designing well....anything.
Unlike Graham Leslie McCallum's other motif books (most of them) this book does not include a CD. (not that one is lost, it never had one).
The contents list designs from: Stone Age Europe, Neolithic Europe, Mesopotamia, Egyptian, Minoan, Mycenaean, Greek, Chinese, Early Celtic, Barbarian, Romanesque, Gothic, Japanese, Art Deco and a full index.
These designs are all copyright free.
A wonderful detail, Graham McCallum dedicates this book to his 2 Saluki hounds, Sirocco and Shikan. I love this.
First Published by Batsford in 2006, I do not know if this is the 2006 or a later re-print. Pattern Motifs is a matte cover paperbound book with 382 pages.
It is in very good condition. The edges of the book are worn and there are 2 small bends in the covers, one in front and one in back. There is also. a small double indentation on the back but the important things like the spine and the condition of the pages is very good. For a book this thick the spine is very important. A previous owner put a name sticker on the first page.
