Ethno Pop Textures Volume 1 by Vincenzo Sguera

20 Feb

You can practically hear the drums, smell the incense and see the red glow of the sunset. With an array of beautiful graphics to offer, Vincenzo Sguera’s Ethno Pop Textures Volume 1 is the perfect source for anyone looking to add a splash of bohemia to any given project.

A book of incredible patterns, Ethno Pop Textures gives examples of a huge variety of ethnically inspired prints and then comes complete with a disc of 100 designs that are free and ready to use. Pop Textures really is the best phrase to use for this book; bright colours bring the effervescence of classic pop culture but the wide range of pattern configurations provided communicate endless opportunity in terms of texture.

A particular theme I picked up on throughout the book was that it was quite tribal; all patterns had a very earthy feel to them, with lots including pictures of animals or plants in their make-up. Patterns were featured in the book quite accordingly by colour. Since each colour scheme had lots of different textures to accompany it, it was great to know that once you had narrowed down your selection of shades you still had lots of variety in patterns.

If you are about to create something that requires a little hippy-chic, perhaps a new fair-trade website or an ethically sourced clothing line, then the images in this Vincenzo Sguera book are for you. A pricey addition to your bookshelf, maybe, but a crisp and vibrant selection for your creative ventures.

A la Mode Appraisal: 10/10

Ethno Pop Textures Volume 1 by Vincenzo Sguera is published by Arkivia Books and will bring some ethnic magic to your work for £67.50.
