Sources and Copyright for Pattern Book Designs

Many of our designs are adapted from old books and other printed materials. In most cases the original illustrations are out of copyright and in the public domain and as such are free to be adapted and reprinted by anyone.

The captions to our cards and poster-wrap always carry information about the source, should anyone wish to seek out the original material themselves. However, our own adaptations of the illustrations or graphics, as printed on our cards and poster-wrap, are copyrighted to The Pattern Book Press Ltd.

Where there is some doubt over the origin or authorship of an illustration we have done our best to establish the source, and credit and caption accordingly. If you believe we have not credited anything correctly or have information about sources that we are not aware of, we would be pleased to hear about it and to correct or amend our captions and credits accordingly.
