A visual delight, and a designer's dream--the decorative details of great European paintings transformed into beautiful two-dimensional patterns Richly embroidered robes. Intricate lace collars. Elaborately laid floor tiles. Delicately carved and modeled cornices and capitals. These are among the details of decorative art that the Old Masters lovingly rendered in their paintings, to establish a setting, convey a portrait subject's social status, or sometimes just enliven a scene. Together these details--so easy to overlook in the imposing harmony of draftsmanship, color, and composition that makes up a great painting--form a veritable history of ornament. This inventive book plucks these decorative motifs from the background of paintings by masters like Bronzino, Fra Angelico and Jacques-Louis David, and transforms them into vibrant two-dimensional patterns. Seeing these patterns side-by-side with the original paintings deepens our appreciation of both. Patterns in Art will be a resource for graphic designers, and a revelation for all art lovers.

This book will allow you to travel through time and space. To facilitate your journey, the editor has scoured the four corners of the earth in a quest for unusual people and their fascinating patterns. From Mozambique, to Asia, to many European countries, the contributors to The Pattern Book include world-famous cancer researchers, little-known artists and eclectirc computer programmers. Some of the patterns are ultramodern, while others are centuries old. Many of the patterns are drawn from the universe of mathematics. Computer recipes are scattered throughout. Although the emphasis is on computer-generated patterns, the book is informal and the intended audience spans several fields. The emphasis is on the fun that the true pattern lover finds in doing, rather than in reading about the doing! The book is organized into three main parts: Representing Nature (for those patterns which describe or show real physical phenomena, e.g., visualizations of protein motion, sea lilies, etc.), Mathematics and Symmetry (for those patterns which describe or show mathematical behavior, e.g. fractals), and Human Art (for those patterns which are artistic works of humans and made without the aid of a computer, e.g. Moslem tiling patterns.) Contents:Representing NatureMathematics and SymmetryHuman Art Readership: Computer graphic scientists, computer scientists, artists and mathematicians. keywords:Fractals;Pattern;Computer Graphics;Computer Art;Scientific Visualization;Mathematics;Mandelbrot Set;Tilings;Symmetry;Beauty;Aesthetics;Nature “Fractals can be found everywhere, and Clifford Pickover has done a good job in selecting some of the best. The range of the collection is considerable, from ‘Wood Pattern’ to ‘Trajectories of A Neural Network Quantizer in Rhythm Space’. And all posses a simplistic beauty that justifies the presence of art in the title. Such creations, possessing enormous complexity from very simple origins, truly force us to stretch our imaginations. All of the generation processes are very easy to understand, and some modifications for additional exploration are obvious … One more in the collection of works devoted to fractals, this book ranks among the easiest to understand. A natural first book for those interested in fractals as objects of mathematical study or art.” Charles Ashbacher Journal of Recreational Mathematics “Artists, scientists, and computer enthusiasts will be delighted by this inspiring collection of visually striking patterns with accompanying explanations and references.” Julien C Sprott Strange Attractors: Creating Patterns in Chaos “The Pattern Book: Fractals, Art, & Nature — fascinating! A feast for both the eyes and mind! … This book helps us gain insights on how patterns are created and their scientific connections, while letting us enjoy the impact of their visual beauty. A must for those interested in science, nature, or art.” div style="text-align: right;">Theoni Pappas The Joy of Mathematics and The Magic of Mathematics “Particularly noteworthy are the many contributions by Dr. I D Entwistle, whose name is well known to readers of Fractal Report. The images submitted by him show outstanding originality and artistry; of their class they are unique. Other contributors worthy of special mention here include Earl F Glynn and Mieczyszlaw Szyszkowicz for their striking and original images … This beautifully illustrated and informative book can be highly recommended.” C J Freeman Fractal Report “Interesting introduction to the world of patterns.” The American Mathematical Monthly “The patterns, many in black and white, some in color, are generally intricate and beautiful. Pseudocode and code are provided for many of the patterns. The book stimulates experiment. An excellent resource for entry into the world of patterns. Recommended for artists, scientists, and computer enthusiasts, undergraduates through professionals.” G J G Junevicus Choice “The Pattern Book is a visual smorgasbord … My first prize goes to the microphotograph of leaf structure showing its dendritic and fractal character.” The Chemical Intelligencer

Travelers & scholars have long been puzzled by similarities in the arts of diverse ancient & tribal cultures. It remained for the American art historian Carl Schuster (1904-1969) to discover a set of patterns designed by ancient peoples to illustrate their ideas about kinship. Schuster succeeded in decoding this iconography, which lasted over ten thousand years, crossed continents, & outlived most of the cultures that sheltered it.

Is less really more? In reaction to the reign of Minimalism, designers, artists, and architects are rediscovering the power of patterns and embracing décors once rejected as superfluous, by covering lamps, chairs, rooms or entire façades with stripes, polka dots and ornamental designs. This definitive overview is the book that launched the new trend in publications about patterns. Using examples of contemporary work by internationally renowned designers such as Fabio Novembre, Claesson Koivisto Rune and Karim Rashid, by architects such as Herzog & de Meuron, Steven Holl and Sauerbruch Hutton, and artists such as Bridget Riley and Gerhard Richter, it lays out a kaleidoscope of colours and forms before the reader. Multidisciplinary approaches and applications, and new interpretations of traditional motifs are illustrated, as well as the impact and influence of technical innovations such as laser engraving and digital milling on the creation and realization of patterns today.
