A lavishly illustrated survey of Pacific fiber art, with a stunning compilation of contemporary, archival, and museum images--an indispensable sourcebook for artists, craftspeople, designers, and architects. Many of the most appealing and flamboyant designs of the human imagination have been expressed in the form of patterns. Nowhere is this more evident than in the South Pacific, which is home to some of the most innovative and inspirational patterns in fabric and fiber: an ever-changing story in which the islanders have reacted to the changes brought by contacts with Europe or by contemporary Western popular culture. Using natural fibers taken from local plant resources, such as coconut palm or pandanus leaves, and contemporary materials, including unraveled plastic sacking and lengths of shiny video tape, patterns of astonishing creativity and color are woven, bound, knotted, plaited, rubbed, or stamped. 'Pacific Pattern' provides a visual journey through the history of the Pacific, the techniques associated with fiber and fabric, and their cultural relevance to the people. It is the first book to reach beyond the ritual domain to encompass patterns in the everyday sphere, including the traditional patterns found in floor coverings, cooking containers, or storage baskets and the use of fiber art in architecture and interiors. 327 color illustrations. Book has minor shelf wear. Edge of dust jacket shows some minor wear. Bottom corner of spine has small dent. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 20110105119703
