THE PATTERN BASE: OVER 550 CONTEMPORARY TEXTILE AND SURFACE DESIGNS. Kristi O'Meara. Thames and Hudson Inc., New York, 2015. 368 pp. with 690 ills. (647 col.). 25 x 18 cm. LC 2014-952408 ISBN 9780500291795 In English.
Publisher's description: Textile design has been liberated and democratized by digital media. With new technology allowing for more precise manipulation and larger variation of materials and patterns, textile designers have found new ways to create ambitiously, experiment, and be inspired. At the same time, the rise of digital processes has led to a renewed appreciation of traditional craftsmanship and the handmade, and of the tactility and construction of textiles and surfaces. In The Pattern Base, Kristi O'Meara, designer and creative director of the Chicago-based design studio The Patternbase, showcases more than 550 textile, surface, fashion, and print designs from over 150 designers working around the world. Part One is a sourcebook of these designs, organized by type of pattern: Geometric, Floral, Representational, Digital Abstract, Illustrative, and Fabric Swatches. Part Two presents profiles of fifteen artists, constituting the hottest up-and-comers in the field, including Lorenzo Nanni, whose delicate beadwork conjures the natural world's flora and fauna; Anita Hirlekar, whose felt, velvet, and lace work create luscious variations of texture; and Kayla Mattes, mistress of kitsch aesthetics and material experimentations.
