Vintage Patterns of Japan
This beautiful book arrived from Amazon today. It's called 'Vintage Patterns of Japan'.
I saw it in a book shop in town, but didn't buy it as it's pretty expensive, but immediately wished I had when I got home because it is a brilliant source book for patterns and colours.
There are beautiful candy colours and traditional patterns and designs.
I think they'd be great for screenprinting inspiration, or embroidery.
Or maybe, just some sketching.
I'd also like to do a bit of lino-cutting and these look perfect for that.
I don't actually have time to do any of these things at the moment, but once I have cloned myself, there'll be no problems, and I'll be crafting to my hearts content.
In the meantime, there is always time for biscuits.
