Patterns is a great book by Drusilla Cole that compiles many different patterns from contemporary artists. It covers conversational, abstract, geometric, retro and organic patterns in a variety of media. There is a huge array of different techniques shown as well, from shibori to CAD. I think this book is really inspiring to just flip through (amazon will let you peek inside too.) I would reccomend it for anyone that is interested in pattern within the feild of fibers/fabrics for design and fine art.
