What Reviewers Are Saying
"Raymond Honeyman's preoccupation with hand painted pattern stands out as a testament to the enduring significance of meticulous craft-based skill. A designer of printed textiles, and also over the past decade focussing on the design of needlepoint kits, Honeyman's refusal to surrender to computer-aided design coincides with a global resurgence of interest in artisanal values. This book shows his original artworks and offers an insight into the mind of a master colourist. From paisley to tartan, the Mikado to Ming, his playful use of design and sophisticated blending of colour bring familiar images into unusual juxtaposition. Pushing the boundaries, his meticulous detail produces a depth and richness in pattern with a resulting complexity that puts his work in a category of its own. Anyone who appreciates colour and seeks inspiration in its manipulation will enjoy this book." Mary Schoeser, 2007"
