as many of you may have read print & pattern is going to be turned into a book by top publisher laurence king. the aim of the book will be to celebrate the creativity in surface design and stationery today. we'll hopefully feature patterns, cards, papergoods, scrapbooking, textiles, ceramics, badges, in fact anything with a great printed surface. in the USA the book will be distributed by chronicle books. if you would like to submit images for the book then here are all the details. there are two main ways to send me your images - on cd in the post or via email. there will be an ftp site too for anyone who has real difficulty with the other two more prefered options. so here goes :
CALL FOR ENTRIES
