Finally, I finish my book with the jacket and another one poster folding inside. I fold a small floder and place it with the back cover for keep my poster there. About the poster, I bring nine of my patterns and stick them together like a piece of patchwork. Last, my dust jacket can be pull off and use them as a poster or a bunch of flower to decorate your house (and honestly, when using this jacket as a cover, it’s very hard to hold this book)
When a dust jacket covered the book, you can see the whole bunch of flowers and just the bookmarks.

I went to Fashion and Textile museum last week, because my friend told me that there are now “Very Sanderson 150 years of English Decoration” , it’s about Pattern and I might like that! so I was there, and love it like my friend told. I found many incredible pieces of clothes and the way they made a pattern when there was no computer from the last 150 years. As I thought, they first draw grids and hand draw on paper. It seems pretty hard to make them in a nice layout without any programme’s help. I think the British style based on flowers, it was started from there and still in everything today from a cup to a wallpaper that wrap a building. I quite like that, I think it’s this country style and identity. Even new designers like, Cath Kidston remade the old style to a cute and modern style flower pattern and brings them to all her products. After this exhibition, I feel like I want to make my own pattern like my first plan to my London book.

In the Icons and symbols class, I was told to create signage for the area in London I choose. My group choose Covent Garden area which has a way to China town also. We got many ideas for create symbolic of places around there, like a symbol of a man a hat and money in their eyes, refer to a street show there which you have to pay for watching them, or a upside down duck for China town. After many ideas we did, we decided to mix the symbols and the signags together, related to what we feel that ares is. All the mood, feeling, sounds, smells and people there are like, we agree as a fun feeling like a festival is explain that area best. Not only thinking about the shape of places and directions there, but I have learnt to think about the atmosphere and the feeling of that area to.
