The new book, published by Laurence King, is the latest from the Print and Pattern blog and has been designed by & Smith.

It’s packed with examples and thankfully organised alphabetically so you can navigate the kaleidoscope of case studies by designer.

The book gives a good sense of the broad application of geometric designs across stationary, textiles, homewares, ceramics and gadget skins among others.

Bowie Style or Marie Perkins as she is also known, has authored the book. She started the print and pattern blog in her spare time while researching mood boards in her job as a textile designer.
