PRINT & PATTERN BOOK - call for entries

Just a reminder I am looking for designers to feature in the new book 'Print & Pattern Nature' in case you missed it.
I would love to hear from P&P readers who would like their flora and fauna designs to be included. You may wish to create new work or perhaps you will have something suitable in your portfolio already. Remember all copyright stays with you so if you do decide to create any special works for the book you can still offer them in your portfolio to clients.
These are the kinds of themes I will be looking for :
Plants, Leaves, Grasses, Trees, Seeds, Flowers, Cacti, Succulents, Tropicana, Feathers, Pebbles, Minerals, Crystals, Gems, Fossils, Insects, Butterflies, Mushrooms, Nuts, Acorns, Fruit, Berries, Clouds, Rainbows, Snowflakes, Water, Wood, Seaweed, Fish, Sea life, Shells, etc. and although these are the main focus of the book I will also be hoping to include birds and animals.

If you would like your work to considered for inclusion all you need to do is send a selection of low res jpegs (no less than two - no more than ten) to bowiestyle@hotmail.co.uk and mark your email Nature Book. The Deadline for entries is September 1st 2015 but I am working on the book already so feel free to send in as soon as you are ready. Take a look at some of the other P&P books on Pinterest here to see the kind of things we like to publish, plus I have made some moodboards below to show the style of book I hope to create. I am looking for patterns, placement prints, illustrations, cards, wallpaper, fabrics etc.


Any general questions just ask in the comments below : )

Hello!
When will you let artists know if their work will be used in the book or not?
Thank you!

Hi Anon,
Yes all artists who make it into the book will hear from me first as they will need to submit high res files and answer a little questionnaire.

Hi Nancy,

Thank you for submitting : )

Yes I have received your files and they will go for review. Before I make any final decisions I have to see what else is coming in. That way we don't end up with a book that is all too much of one subject.

Sorry Joanne - This post is from back in August and the book is nearly finished now. I did post, tweet, pin etc. to try and let everyone know.

Thanks, my son turned 1 on September 6th so I think I was so busy ahead of his birthday that I just missed it! Maybe next time:)
