The next exciting title in the bestselling motif series, 'Pattern Motifs' provides stunning patterns from around the world, and from various historical and cultural periods. They include patterns that have their design source in Ancient Egypt, Greece, Rome, the Celts, Islam, India, Africa, and Aboriginal lands but also the worlds of western folk, Gothic, Arts and Crafts, Art Nouveau and Art Deco.

The types of pattern provided include interlaced, basketweave, network patterns, web-like patterns, plaited, twisted, chequer, tartan, diaper, chevron, intersection patterns, Paisley and Arabesque.

Author Graham McCallum's fine draughtsmanship makes this large resource of motifs an essential addition to the library of every designer and crafter, whether they are a needleworker, quilter, glass painter or woodworker. All the images are free to be copied and used for further creative work. The detailed index at the back of the book makes the search for the ideal motif quick and easy.
