Unique showcase exploring the use of pattern for visual communication across design disciplines.
The second in this highly collectible new series translates the language of circles and dots in design.

Reviews - What do customers think about Communicating with Pattern: Circles and Dots (Communicating with Pattern)?
Fascinating and inspirational Jul 28, 2007
I bought this book out of curiousity, knowing nothing about it except for the short blurb on this site. I love it! It set me off on a whole series of mixed media and machine embroidery pieces using circles. I keep it close at hand in my studio and when I feel the Muse is taking an extended coffee break, I dip into it. It taught me to look at the world around me in a different way and I learned a lot of circle related trivia at the same time. It has photographs of everything round from crop circles to man hole covers to logos and everything in between. Truly fascinating!
