About the Author
Marie Perkins started the Print & Pattern blog in her spare time whilst researching for mood boards in her job as a textile designer. Creating trend books for leading UK stores meant she needed images to demonstrate print trends, and after finding no dedicated blogs at that time decided to start one. The blog soon became a must-read for those in the industry. Marie is herself a successful surface designer working under the name Inkjet Designs, her work has featured in numerous magazines and newspaper articles.

There are so much content on the Print and Pattern blog that it's not surprising a second book came out. It's still 304 pages so that's a lot of work to look at.
The prints and patterns in the book are beautiful. They are colourful and fun to look at. Most are vector style but the variety is immense. They all come with short artist profiles.
Great book for designers, illustrators and those who like crafting.
(There are more pictures of the book on my blog. Just visit my Amazon profile for the link.)
"Print & Pattern Volume 2" is much like Volume 1: It's a beautiful, THICK (dictionary thick!) book full of large, glossy images of all sorts of patterns and motifs- everything from beautiful florals to abstracts to vintage designs to kawaii cute. Anytime I need inspiration, or just need a quick distraction and a burst of energy, I flip through this book. There is also information on each designer, including their websites, so you can see even more.
This book is an invaluable resource to me as an artist, as well as a delight to just flip through. I'm seriously tempted to buy a second copy to leave on the living room table because everyone winds up pulling it from my shelf in my studio and flipping through it. It's just beautiful.
If need inspiration or just visual joy, this is the book for you. And what a great gift for everyone from young people (drawing inspiration is endless and it is eye candy) to... well, anyone interested in color!
