Pattern + Palette Sourcebook 3 is a desktop library of

colors and patterns that addresses the professional's realworld needs in working with harmonies and contrasts.

Divided into 6 style sections, the book provides readers

with 15 appropriate colors for each section, which are

incorporated into 25 different patterns in each section,

shown in 6 or 8 color variations each. This enables readers to see the dramatic effect colors have in design, and helps them to better understand how to use color effectively. This essential handbook demonstrates ways of creating patterns that are distinctly unique, yet hold together in a group.

Gillian Blease (London) is an illustrator who studied

Fine Art at university and worked as an artist for a

number of years. Clients include The British Council,

Random House Publishing and BBC Worldwide. She

is a weekly contributor to the The Guardian newspaper.

Blease has become well known for her pattern

designs in recent years (regarding it as the perfect

combination of discipline and freedom) and considers

this strand in her career an antidote to the current

affairs and contemporary issues she illustrates

on a daily basis.
