George Lucas once said something along the lines of, “Movies are never finished, they’re just released.”
It’s the same with books. I’ve always said I’d update my books whenever I had some new designs. Last year I created around 200 new designs and I have to put some of them in my books. In theory I could re-write The design master plan using just the new designs, I won’t but I could. I think it’s a good sign when they just flow out of you.
I’ve added in 12 new pages, dozens of new designs and updated some pages so I could fit more illustrations in. It was already jam packed and now there’s even more in it. I’m thinking of updating the cover as well.
I’ve taken From labels to whole-cloths: Volume two offline on Amazon until I finish the new edition and will be taking The design master plan offline soon so I can order a proof book to make sure it’s okay.
In the mean time, here’s a few teaser designs in the new editions and were all inspired by one little flower. There’s 950 designs in this one family of designs…so far.
Instead of doing a third book of designs, I’m going to substitute in many of the new designs into From labels to whole-cloths: Volume two. I’m probably going to update Volume one too but I’ll get these two sorted first.
It’s worth the wait for the new editions and I’ll let you know when they’re published.
