I like all of Graham McCallum's motif books and I intend to purchase more of them

I like all of Graham McCallum's motif books and I intend to purchase more of them. They are a nice addition to any Art reference library. I recommend them for anyone who does illustration, design or craft work. I love the complete patterns and motifs book by Graham McCallum, but I can't afford it, so when i found this on line, I jumped on it. I use it as a go to reference for zentangle, design and doodling.

Graham McCallum is an artist, designer and craftsperson. This book is a great reference in demystifying the REAL origin of patters and motifs. You'll find, however, that one book won't be enough. He is the author of 4000 Flower and Plant Motifs, 4000 Animal, Bird and Fish Motifs and 4000 Alphabet and Letter Motifs as well as Pattern Motifs. He teaches and writes on design and lives in Durban, South Africa. Another good book, if you want more historical information as well as great images is "Designs and Patterns From Historic Ornament" by W. and G. Audsley.

Marginally useful. There *are* 400 designs offered, but many are ver poor quality, and many I wouldn't even call designs --- they are more like rough copies of illustrations. I didn't pay much for the book, so I'm not terribly disappointed, and I found a few inspirations for my own designs, so I don't feel bad about buying it. However, if you are actually planning on transferring a design from this book to use in your own work, I think you'd do better to go get one ofthe Dover books on Chinese Design instead; their quality is quite a bit better than these.

I did not realize that a CD was included with the book, that was a nice surprise. I like all of Graham McCallum's motif books and I intend to purchase more of them. They are a nice addition to any Art reference library. I recommend them for anyone who does illustration, design or craft work.
