Fabrics, ribbons, wallpaper, apparel, objects, architecture and even landscapes—it is our undeniable inclination to add pattern to our surroundings. Through paint, ink, fabric, paper and tile, everything looks prettier with a pattern on it! 

This issue features the Second Edition of the UPPERCASE Surface Pattern Design Guide.


back issues

UPPERCASE magazine is always inspiring—even the older issues! The content isn't time- or season-specific, so there's always something to discover in previous issues.

Once an issue is sold out, it won't be reprinted (nor is the magazine available digitally). Stock your library with a pretty inspiring selection of magazines.
