About this project

Geometric Two is a limited edition pattern book filled to the brim with original and previously unpublished geometric artworks by Kapitza. A must-have for every design conscious individual who loves beautiful books, patterns and colour.

About the project

This is our third book on the theme of creating patterns with pattern fonts. Our previous books are the highly acclaimed 'Geometric' and 'Organic', which has just been nominated for the Designs of the Year 2013 Awards by the Design Museum in London. 

Book Spec

  • 224 pages
  • 176 full colour illustrations
  • 48 black and white illustrations
  • Highest quality, matte Munken paper
  • Offset printing
  • Hardcover
  • Size 17×23 cm, 6.7×9.1 inches

Who is the book for?

Geometric Two is a treasure trove of new ideas for any colour and pattern enthusiast. It is ideal for print and pattern fans, art book lovers, students and anyone who is working in art and design like interior designers, fashion- and textile designers, architects and graphic designers.

Why do we need your help?

Our aim is to create something special, a book that you can't find in bookshops that is beautifully printed and bound. We want to create something you will reach for in your bookshelf for years to come, something truly timeless and inspirational.

Please support this project. We have created all the artworks and the layout for Geometric Two and are ready to go as soon as we have raised the money for the printing cost. 

When will we make the book?

The contents of the book and the layout are already designed and ready to go to print if we reach our funding goal. From then it will take 4 weeks to print the book and another week to get it ready for shipping. This means we can ship the book in late November, early December and it will be with you just in time for the Holidays.

What will we use the money for?

Printing a full-color book isn't cheap, especially if you want to print to the highest standards in Europe. We are working with one of the best printing houses in Germany, specialising in art and design books. Their print production is environmentally friendly and we will be printing with vibrant bio inks on high-quality, uncoated FSC FSI certified paper.

The money will be used for the printing of the book and the tote bags, packaging, shipping and Fees. If we exceed our funding goal, all funds will go into printing the book to an even higher standard. We would love to bind the book with a saddle stitched open spine and adding special colours and paper stock.

With your help, this Kickstarter campaign will make it possible for us to keep full creative control over our work and to self-publish a truly unique and beautiful book.

What people say about our pattern books

'An indispensable tool for any designer.' Liz Farrelly, Eye magazine 71

'The books are packed with visual delights: each page is more eye-catching than the last. For those feeling a little uninspired at work or in the studio, take a look through ‘Geometric’ or ‘Organic’, even the quickest flick through, you’ll find yourself brimming with new inspiration and motivation.' Caroline McCurdy, DG Design Network

'This book is a visual masterpiece and will look very good in your studio, office, or home coffee table! We guarantee you'll like it!' Fred Showker, graphic-design.com

'Love!' Tina Roth Eisenbergswissmiss

Risks and challenges

If we get funded, we can't imagine there being any problems in completing the project. We have finished the design of the book and it is ready to go to print. We have booked a slot with our printers, and it will take 4 weeks to print the book. This means that we can ship the book to you in late November / early December so that it will arrive in time for the Holidays.
