new print book

regular readers will know that my favourite patttern designer is orla kiely, just one of the many great designers featured in 'print in fashion'. this fabulous book by marnie fogg features work & interviews with many of todays top print people : orla, neisha crosland, ann-louise roswald, eley kishimoto, paul smith, and tons more. it gives inside info on the process and inspiration for the designs. i bought it in waterstones for £17.99 and its worth every penny. i'd rate it 10 out of 10. plus its an absolute steal on amazon at the moment just £11.97 !. i cannot recommend this book highly enough. if you love print & pattern you must get this book !

What a great book! I ordered a copy straight away and cannot wait for it to arrive! Thanks for posting all of those photos! I also happened to find a small pattern book from Japan that I purchased on my last trip to NYC and posted the images to my blog today.
