This book explores a wide range of mathematical concepts relating to regularly repeating surface decoration and provides a comprehensive means of classifying patterns and tilings. It covers issues from basic concepts of symmetry to more complex issues such as graph theory, group theory, and topology. Although the primary focus is on the characteristics of surface-pattern designs, the material addresses all types of surface designs, including textiles, wallpapers, and building and wrapping materials. The author elaborately illustrates the concepts, thereby rendering this complex area-previously best understood by mathematicians and crystallographers-accessible to artists and designers.

Repeating patterns can soothe or energize us, bringing joy and harmony to everyday life. Repeat Printed Pattern for Interiors explores the power repeat patterns hold over us and what goes into creating original, effective printed designs. Beginning with the history of patterns in interior design, Kate Farley uncovers lessons from the work of Owen Jones, William Morris, Collier Campbell and Josef Frank. There are also interviews with some of the best contemporary pattern designers working today: Angie Lewin, Deborah Bowness, Eley Kishimoto, Emma J. Shipley, Galbraith & Paul, Neisha Crosland, Orla Kiely OBE, Sarah Campbell and Timorous Beasties. Each interview covers the designer's practice and ethos and includes a deconstruction of one design, with discussion of initial sketches, details of design development, manufacturing insights and images of final products. Covering hand-drawn techniques through to digital manipulation, you'll also be guided through the implications of visual language, colour statements, manufacturing considerations and commercial interior contexts to prepare you to jump in and start creating your own unique patterns.
