book review: Patterns

Em posted today at Itsknotwood about the incredible Heinrich Weid, that was featured in this book I recently got called Patterns in Design, Art and Architecture. It’s written by Petra Schmidt, Annette Tietenberg, and Ralf Wolheim. I first read about it in Wallpaper, but it wasn’t until a friend who had recently come back from a trip from Paris, was mentioning it again to me, that I decided to check it out. It’s an amazing visual reference of pattern that has recently made a resurgence in design within the past few years. The idea of “ornament” is fascinating and this book shows tons of great examples, and in all aspects of design. The fluorescent cover alone sold me. A must have for any design junkie!
