My Work Published in 'Exciting World of Pattern Design'

Last spring I was contacted by the team of people working on a new book for Zeixs, who asked if I could send them some of my work to be included in their upcoming book 'Exciting World of Pattern Design'. That was pretty exciting and flattering!! So off I sent my pictures, not thinking much of it, and low and behold last fall the book was published with photo's of my work included. Me? Seriously gushing with excitement!

I thought I'd go ahead and share the pages I'm on with you, as well as turn this into a book review to share with you some of the other fabulous work included in this book.

First off, this book is like a brick! It's about 5.25" square, and about 2.25" thick, jam-packed with more than 700 patterns inside it's 653 pages! The book categorizes the artwork into 7 sections: Objects, Animals, Typo, Human, Geometric, Abstract & Floral. Each page is flooded with images, the only wording on the page is the artist's name & website information - which is also included in a list in the index in the back.

There is such a plethora of inspiration and different styles captured in this book! The images I've included are just a small sneak-peak as to what is inside. Some of the pages even include showing the pattern on a product, which is so fun to see it come to life.

My friend Diane lives in Budapest, Hungary and was able to find one in a bookstore over there. She picked me up a copy and brought it to me when we were both in NYC this January. {thanks Diane!!} Speaking of Diane, she is also featured in this book! Check out her beautiful work and adventures in Budapest by visiting her blog.

If you are a pattern lover, and are able to get your hands on one of these German books I would say go for it! It's absolutely stunning and full of beautiful work! I haven't been able to find this book in the US, but you can purchase it online directly from Zeixs.
