J2EE design patterns will be good, and it is from guys out at sun....but it is very Java specific...rather J2EE specific.
The gang of four have their own book which many term as the bible of patterns.

I suggest that your first step would be to use the various Search facilities available on The Fascinating Web such as http://www.google.com
Next step would be to look at online bookstore sites such as http://www.amazon.com and use their usually comprehensive search facilities. James Cooper has a book out on patterns in Java but there are a number of other books as well. Craig Larman's "Applying UML and Patterns, 2nd ed." I believe uses Java examples.
Next, try visiting the JavaRanch Bunkhouse (go to the main page and find the link) see if you can find anything that interests you there.

Design Patterns by Erric Gamma (gang of four) is a very good book but to begin with I recomend 'Java Design Patterns' by Cooper. This is simple to understand.

"Fascinating" -- that's a creative way of expanding it. It just doesn't have the ring of the original though.

I think the best book for Java programmers is now "Applied Java Patterns" by Olav Maassen.
The gang of 4 book is all in C++. You don't need to go there if you are a Java programmer. Applied Java Patterns replaces that book for us. To get a good start I highly recommend "Design Patterns Explained" by Alan Shalloway. If you really want to jump in head first I recommend "Design Patterns Java Workbook" by Steven John Metsker.
