Over and Over: A Catalog of Hand-Drawn Patterns (英語) ペーパーバック – 2008/8/4
Pattern can be derived from many sources, if we remember to look closely. While patterns have been around forever, there'sa recent movement, a tendency among designers, to allow patterns to animate their work with colorful and exuberant complexity. Over and Over: A Catalog of Hand-Drawn Patterns collects groundbreaking work from fifty of today's most talented designers who create patterns by hand and use them in their work in inventive and innovative ways. From Deanne Cheuk's patterns that adorn current fashion to those of Robin Cameron that explore her interest in art to Garrett Morin's patterns that arose from an exercise for a character called Eloie, the examples in this book push the boundaries of the traditional concept of what a pattern is. The selected works are often not an end result but the beginning of something else, of something bigger and broader. While the computer is sometimes involved in the production of patterns, the hand-drawn element is always evident in the uniqueness of these works. Featuring more than 250 vibrant and exciting patterns, Over and Over explores this magic on every single page and will inspire designers everywhere.
Michael Perry is a graphic designer and a typographer who has used patterns in his work for clients such as Zoo York, 2K, Zune, and the New York Times Magazine. He is the author of Hand Job: A Catalog of Type, published by Princeton Architectural Press.

The beautiful cover enticed me to pick it up actually. It's a 256-page paperback with everything printed non-glossy.
There's a great variety of fun looking patterns, all hand-drawn by the 55 artists featured. Everything has that organic and traditional feel, as with hand drawn art. They are all visually captivating and unique.
If you work with patterns, this book should be a good resource for new ideas.

(There are more pictures of this book on my blog. Just visit my Amazon profile for the link.)
To put it simply: hand-drawn is where it's at.
