Coming soon: Marimekko: In Patterns by Chronicle Books

If (like us) you are a fan of the label's wonderful Scandinavian designs, you'll no doubt want to secure yourself a copy of Marimekko: In Patterns, which is published by Chronicle Books.

You probably know more than you think about Marimekko already, with the designs of the Finnish company literally all over the place these days – not to mention pieces that have used those designs for inspiration.

This book looks at both the past and the present, with the upcoming 248-page book said to be 'richly illustrated' with photographs and prints of the label's work. It also offers a 'behind-the-scenes tour' of Marimekko's creative process and features on the people behind the designs from the 1950s onwards, along with rare sketchbook pages, in-depth looks at particular eras and of course, the designs themselves.

If that appeals, the books is available to pre-order now ahead of publishing on 1st October 2014, priced at £18.89.

Note that there is also a Marimekko postcard set that goes along with the book and is sold separately.
