The creation of artistic patterns dates back to our ancient past. From Egypt to Morocco, Greece to China, patterns and pattern makers played a valuable role in the creation of early arts and crafts. Ornamental carpets, tapestries, fabrics and other adornments from the Classical period, through the Middle Ages and into the 20th century predominantly featured flora, fauna and ancient symbols. Classic Patterns takes inspiration from this rich history to draw out new and fresh nuances in pattern creation. A talented group of designers including Charlotte Day and Nicoletta Pagano are featured in over 200 pages of exquisite design. Two distinct sections feature figurative and abstract patterns, and while clearly influenced by the past, new technology has allowed these designs to come into their own. A CD-ROM packed with classic patterns is included for those seeking further inspiration. Classic Patterns is a wonderful resource for any designers reference library.

Business cards are a statement of identity. Capable of conveying much more than contact information, they represent the creativity or style of a company in a portable format. As a historical artifact in the digital age, they are constantly in danger of obsolescence and only those that truly stand out are memorable. Incorporating an interactive component is one way to make a card noteworthy. This collection features a musical comb that plays a tune when strummed and an envelope business card that contains a customizable mini-portfolio. Other designs include inventive uses of color, unusual shapes, or innovative materials such as wood, stainless steel, cotton, rubber and even temperature sensitive paper. Judging by the brilliant designs contained in this collection, the business card is here to stay!

In a prison, igloo, or treehouse, on top of a mountain, or under the stars what's the next stop? Architecture and leisure meet in this glimpse into the craziest places to stay while on the road. The new ideas, transformed spaces, and new interpretations of lodging in Extreme Hotels all prioritize fun. Compiled within are 40 of the most exciting and unusual "overnights" in Europe, from converted lodges, art gallery hotels, geodesic domes, eco pods, and a bustling lounge hostel on a converted houseboat to a one room lodging extended in mid-air within the shell of a functioning wharf crane. Each hotel is described in terms of its architectural and design ingenuity, placed in context on a map of Europe, and introduced with key details including address, phone and fax numbers, date of establishment, and number of rooms and suites. Illustrated beautifully, the volume appeals to both the adventurous tourist and the armchair traveler.

Photographer Rebecca Litchfield captures many abandoned location's, which were either part of the Soviet Union or occupied satellite states during this period of history, including forgotten towns, factories, prisons, schools, monuments, hospitals, theatres, military complexes, asylums & death camps across the former communist states. These photographs deliver a compelling narrative of both moral bankruptcy and flawed ideology. Featuring stunning imagery throughout, this compelling road-trip through the old USSR, breathes new life into these forgotten places, finding both beauty and meaning in their post-apocalyptic decay. Extended essays by Tristi Brownett, Neill Cockwill and Professor Owen Evans, offer considerable contextual depth to the locations imbuing them with a wealth of connection and wonder. By virtue of its holistic approach, the book also explores how and why these once thriving communities became abandoned, whether by natural disaster, man-made catastrophe or simply through the march of time.
