Summary
"From the intricate to the bold, 1000 Patterns offers an array of historical designs from around the world. Pairing color plates with intriguing profiles; author Drusilla Cole reveals the language of pattern and demonstrates how each has evolved throughout the ages. Discover how the plant and animal forms decorating Chinese carpets, textiles, and reliefs spread throughout Asia. Trace the development of stylized motifs in Greece, Rome, and the Byzantine Empire. Learn how the boldly geometric patterns of the '60s led to the psychedelic patterns of the '70s. It's all here in this colourful resource." "Arranged by period and style, you can see at a glance patterns used from ancient to contemporary times. A handy pattern finder up front makes it easy to locate and cross-reference any motif or design in the book. Whether you have a long-standing interest in art and ornamentation or a newfound curiosity, you'll find 1000 Patterns an intriguing reference and fascinating history."--BOOK JACKET
