Just a list of patterns
The In-Depth Look:
Inspired by the Op-Art movement of the 1960s, the author brings you a collection of 19 patterns of vivid, creative socks.
She explains that “Op art was identified in 1964 as a movement in the visual arts that emphasizes the psychological and physiological conditions of visual experience. Op Art explores visual perception through the illusion of movement, much of which is unsettling to the viewer and difficult for the eye to resolve.”
Well, what could be more appropriate for footwear than sock patterns that move on their own? Drawing on the likes of Fibonacci, Herrmann, Escher, and others, this collection makes for some fascinating sock patterns. Some use color, some use stitch patterns, but all of them are creative in a very geometric, mathematical kind of way.
