NEW BOOK - print & pattern

the wait is over at last, the print & pattern book is finally here, and today im posting some snapshots to give you the flavour of how it turned out. i have included 120 designers spread over 300 pages each with a mini bio and contact details. they've been gathered from all over the world, many of them are people i approached back in 2008 when i first had the chance to make this book. we also had a call for entries here on P+P which resulted in hundreds of submissions, in fact we had more good stuff than space allowed. some of those included are : orla kiely, cath kidston, paperchase, caroline gardner, lotta kuhlhorn, petra boase, crowded teeth, rock scissor paper, nathalie lete, sukie, and sanna annukka. the official date for release is march 1st but amazon uk have stock in already. in the USA the wait is slightly longer, with amazon us putting it down as march 24th. but with chronicle books distributing it here its sure to widely available when the time comes.

I have just received my copy and it looks fantastic - so many congratulations! I am really looking forward to having a good read and enjoying the work of all my favourite designers and those that are new to me. Thank you so much for such a lovely treat.

Thank you also for the grand reveal. It must have been a tough decision to use your real name after all this time but as one of your readers I can say we much appreciate it. It is nice to have a glimpse of the 'real you' but fear not you will always be the wonderful 'Bowie Style' to us!

Congratulations! The book looks fantastic--I know it was a real labour of love. I look forward to seeing it in person.

I'm sure it was very difficult for you to "come out" after using a blogging pseudonym for so long. But to us, you'll always be 'Bowie Style'. :)
