Stripes, Grids and Checks considers the nature of lines and assemblies of lines, including stripes and grids, as well as related phenomena such as checks, tilings and patterns, regular and irregular, repeating and non-repeating. A wide range of examples are drawn from urban and rural environments, at the macro and micro levels, in land- and cityscapes, buildings, and other designed constructions, compositions and objects. Considered conventionally, checks, periodic tilings and regular patterns owe their compositional arrangements to an order imposed by an underlying grid structure. The intention in this book is to analyse, explain and illustrate the nature of each design type, to identify the structural (or geometric) similarities between each and to show how the manipulation of various underlying grid structures can provide innovative compositional frameworks for artists and designers. The discussion is richly illustrated with 400 black and white images and an eight page colour section.

Stripes, Grids and Checks gives a wide-ranging introduction to the timeless tradition of composition, structure and form in the visual arts and design. A clearly understandable overview is provided of a wide range of classic principles, all of importance to creative arts practitioners, researchers and teachers. -- Gavin Ambrose, University of Brighton, UK This book provides fresh insights into structure and form in the visual arts and design. Extensive illustration is an attractive feature, and the colour section, with reproductions of 32 rare Scottish clan tartans, is especially welcome. Michael Hann has provided a reference book of undoubted value to students, practitioners and teachers. -- Ruth Mateus-Berr, Professor at the University of Applied Arts, Vienna, Austria
