Philippine Ethnic Patterns: A Design Sourcebook
Philippine Ethnic Patterns: A Design Sourcebook is a rich cultural resource for designers and design students. Authored by Dr. Jesus Peralta, it presents various ethnic patterns grouped according to materials - bamboo, metal, terracotta, textiles, wood craft, processes used to achieve such patterns, and their provenance. An essay introduces each section and tells the 'story' behind the patterns created by the communities.
