In Patterns: Design and Composition, M. A. Hann and I. S. Moxon present guidelines for the original design and composition of regular patterns alongside an understanding of the inherent structures of these patterns. Starting with the compositional elements, Hann and Moxon take the reader through patterns in the environment, early forms of patterns and aspects of classification based on circles, squares, triangles and symmetry. With 250 images sourced from past examples as well as student work, this essential read for design students and researchers demonstrates how simplicity begets complexity in the design and composition of regular patterns.
