Crafting Motifs are essential for crafting any item through blacksmithing, clothing, or woodworking. Reading crafting motifs unlocks the related styles. Every player begins the game having already "learned" the racial motif associated with their race.

There are two types of motif, complete and partial. Complete motifs is the entire book, which will unlock the style for all weapons and armor. Partial motifs are divided into fourteen chapters, each of which must be found and read to unlock all parts of that style. Some partial motifs, such as Dwemer, can be found fully complete, which when read unlocks all fourteen chapters at once.

The motifs are also divided by rarity. The first nine racial motifs are quite common and can be found in containers and backpacks, for example. The rest are divided between purple (epic) and gold (legendary). Purple motifs are more commonly dropped or possibly rewarded after certain quests, such as dailies. Gold motifs are very rare. Almost every container has the potential to hold a motif.
