Overview


Designers and craftsworkers — whether they're looking for permission-free graphics or artistic inspiration — will find a treasure chest of ideas in this inexpensive collection of attractive Scandinavian folk-art designs.
With 155 traditional motifs to choose from — all adapted by noted Danish designer Lis Bartholm — today's artists and craftspeople can re-create many of the lovely patterns that ornamented domestic furnishings generations ago. Eye-catching elements adapted from designs that decorated china or were painted or carved on furniture, walls, and wooden dinnerware include clusters of flowers, children in peasant garb, centerpieces filled with fruits and flowers, floral and foliate borders, wreaths, and much more.
Commercial artists will find these attractive designs reproduce easily for use as textile, wallpaper, and stencil designs or for enhancing advertisements, greeting cards, posters, menus, and other graphic assignments. Needleworkers will be delighted with lovely motifs that lend a simple charm to wall hangings, quilts, embroidered bed and table linen, and other needlecraft projects.
