Abstract/Summary Lavishly illustrated throughout with a rare combination of contemporary, archival and museum images, Pacific Pattern takes the reader on a spectacular journey through the history of the Pacific and the myriad ways in which its peoples weave, bind, knit, plait, rub and stamp patterns of astonishing creativity. It is the first book to reach beyond the ritual domain to encompass patterns in the everyday sphere, including the patterns found in floor coverings, cooking containers, or storage baskets and the use of fibre arts in architecture and interiors. Pacific Pattern is an indispensable sourcebook for artists, craftspeople, designers and architects worldwide.
