Product description

Almost as new hardback with minimal wear at top and bottom of spine and at corners.

This highly visual book is an exploration of creativity and ideas, using 'pattern, colour and form' as the key areas to explore and develop. The author shows how different makers find inspiration from a variety of source material, and how they translate that material into original and highly individual work. The book explores the wide range of ideas and approaches that people have, and how they then apply this to pattern, colour and form. Through interviews and analysis of work from a broad range of craft disciplines, the book discusses creativity in general, the development of ideas, and makers' use of source material to produce work of vision and presence that is a coherent whole. The book is also a treasure trove of inspiring images that readers can use as a starting point for their own work.
