Synopsis

From ornate Mehndi patterns painted on Indian women's feet to traditional sugar cane skulls to celebrate the Mexican Day of the Dead, the world is full of exotic and intricate patterns - when you look for them, they are everywhere. This book takes you on a trip through the continents, highlighting the beauty to be found along the way - on clothing, pottery, motifs and buildings - and the pages give you plenty of space to come up with your own designs as well. Historical facts are scattered throughout so you can learn a little as you colour; immerse yourself in a variety of fascinating cultures with a different pattern on each page. Each of the patterns can be pulled out for you to use as decorations, and you can be as creative as you like. Carefully chosen footnotes invite you to play with colour palettes, experiment with free-drawing and take patterns into new directions. This stunning and inventive adult art series has been designed to fire up your creativity. Come and play!
