19. The Principles Of Pattern: For Craftsmen And Designers by Richard M. Proctor
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I read the hardcover version of this. Chock full of images demonstrating the basic pattern types and their arrangements: square, brick and half-drop, diamond, triangle, ogee, hexagon, circle, and scale.
It's not a how-to book, more of a things can fit together in all these different ways.
The selected bibliography in the back has some books I'd like to check out if I can find them.
The only thing that annoyed me was that he attributed a significant number of examples to "students of the author" while carefully attributing everything else.
Aside from that, there's a lot to be inspired by.
