Back Cover Information

This unique collection of pattern designs in Pattern Sourcebook: Japanese Style captures Japan's heritage of traditional color, characters and decorative designs passed down through the ages. Each design was carefully selected for use by artists and designers in both their professional projects and personal work. This book offers a collection of 250 Japanese-style decorative patterns across sixty categories and provides examples in both print format and as JPEG and PSD files on a companion CD-Rom. Use this guide as a source of inspiration for your next project or customize the patterns to create your own unique pattern designs. This easy-to-use and practical reference is a valuable sourcebook for anyone working in visual art.

From the Author

Japan has a long heritage of traditional colors, characters and decorative designs, which have been passed down through the ages. This book focuses on decorative designs, providing a collection of materials and accompanying documentation for approximately 60 categories and 250 examples of Japanese designs that today's designers consider essential.

All of the images introduced in this book have been selected from among the stock of designs I have traced over the long years of my career and they have been saved as JPEG and PSD files on the accompanying CD-ROM.

The commentary provided for the designs also includes a description of their histories and origins uses, characteristics and more. I hope that this book will be used widely as a practical Japanese-design production tool.
