Persian Designs is a completely revised edition of one of Agile Rabbit's best-selling volumes. All designs have been re-traced and perfected, and a vast number of exciting designs have been added. Persia had a distinct tradition of ornamental design, setting it apart from other countries in the region. While sharing with them an interest in geometric patterns and ornate calligraphy, traditional Persian design is special in its emphasis on the natural world and its treatment of figurative elements, such as birds and other animals; it is most famously employed in the creation of rugs. Persian Designs presents a diverse collection of patterns and designs, ranging from simple and elegant elements to complex and highly ornate interlocking patterns. It also contains some examples of practical applications of the designs.
