Kapitza, the design studio of sisters Nicole and Petra Kapitza has just released a book for all you geometrophiles out there. Geometric: Graphic Art and Pattern is chock full of 264 coloured and black and white patterns with 100 pattern fonts on an accompanying CD…

The disc apparently contains the most extensive pattern font collection available and includes a helpful font index and a series of tutorials so users can generate their own unique patterns.

Geometric is also beautifully put together. The book is printed on heavy matte stock, with an embossed cover wrapped in an American-style poster (it’s very nice, see below).

The book is available now from Magma bookshops in the UK; £55.
