Abstract Design and How to Create It
Students, designers and craftspeople who want to create their own abstract patterns and designs will find this profusely illustrated guide one of the best books available on the subject.
After an introductory chapter dealing with the geometric basis of design, the author goes on to discuss implements and their use (T-square, compass, dividers, ruling pen, etc.), borders, textile patterns, nature study and treatment.
Over 380 illustrations include many diagrams, designs for title pages, border patterns, allover patterns, textile patterns and historical examples from an extraordinary number of cultures and periods: Assyrian stone carvings, Greek and Roman jewelry, 18th-century English silverwork and more. Thorough and comprehensive, 'Abstract Design' will be an invaluable resource for anyone seeking to learn the principles and techniques of creating nonrepresentative designs.
