About the Designs

The designs in this book come from a variety of sources. As the Aztecs used hieroglyphs and pictograms for writing, objects were simply drawn and brightly colored for clear understand, and despite the destruction of the Spanish conquest, many pictures have survived in illustrated manuscripts called codexes.

Animals are a common feature of Aztec art, particularly snakes, rabbits, insects and birds. They were treated naturalistically, often carved on knife handles or painted on pottery. The Aztecs also depicted fantastic supernatural creatures, such as Xiuhcoatl, the Fire Serpent.

Mosaic work was common, using either semi-precious stones such as turquoise, opal or cornelian to decorate ceremonial masks or jewelry. Aztec featherwork was also famous, using feathers from bright tropical birds (especially the green-plumed quetzal) to make cloaks, ceremonial shields, fans and headresses. Other designs are taken from the Aztec calendars, massive blocks of stone carved with the signs of the zodiac, images of the sun and symbols of the four ages of the world, or from the massive statues of gods that decorated Aztec temple areas.

Fair Use Warning

Design Source Books are a beautiful series of themed pattern books for virtually any craft. The designs can be used as stencil or embroidery patterns, stationery designs, furniture decoration, glass painting guides or whatever your imagination chooses. The designs can be photocopied, traced, colored, adapted or used as inspiration for originating your own designs. They will stand up well to reproduction at any scale.

These are photocopiable pattern books from Search Press, Ltd. The designs in each book are the property of Search Press, Ltd. Readers are permitted to reproduce up to 15 of the individual designs for any single graphic or craft project without the prior permission of the publishers. Wherever possible readers should acknowledge the title, author and publisher.
