Overview

800 Classic Ornaments and Designs by Ernst Gunther

Graphic artists, illustrators, and craftspeople will welcome this treasury of beautifully engraved ornate frames, scrollwork, and other highly decorative designs — 800 in all — reproduced from an extremely rare mid-19th-century style book.
Comprising 142 plates, the volume features a lavish assortment of ornaments, bedecked with flowers, mythological creatures, and other fanciful touches, all beautifully rendered in meticulous detail. Other striking designs incorporate a rich selection of classical columns, plus heraldic designs — shields, coats-of-arms, seals, and insignias from Austria, Russia, Denmark, France, and many other countries — for a touch of medieval flair or aristocratic ambience. In addition, this collection offers a variety of charming calligraphic alphabets in styles ranging from plain to majestic.
An invaluable source of inspiration and a treasury of designs for permission-free use, these distinctive images are ideal for enhancing such print projects as ads, brochures, newsletters, posters, signs, catalog copy, and much more.
