Pattern Motifs: A Sourcebook

(1 customer review)


Woodworkers, quilters, glass painters, and other artisans will welcome this awe-inspiring collection of motifs. Thousands of choices—all suitable for reducing or enlarging—range from simple interlacings, braidings, and basket weaves to intricate tartan, paisley, art deco, and arabesque patterns. Varied and beautiful, they also take inspiration from a variety of cultures and historical periods, including ancient Egyptian, Greek, Roman, Celtic, Gothic, and Chinese, as well as contemporary Islamic, African, Asian, Indian, Native American, and Aboriginal. A special topical index makes it quick and easy to locate a desired mood or difficulty level from all the available designs. Author Graham McCallum’s fine draftsmanship makes this large resource an essential addition to the library of every designer and crafter.

    Can’t believe I found all three volumes from this author on the one website. Books came well packaged and seller friendly and open to any question you might have.
