Drawn from a historic treasury of ornamental designs from France, Germany, and other European countries, this magnificent book and CD-ROM set overflows with 213 arresting black-and-white illustrations. Its highly stylized images of flowers, human and mythological figures, animals, and other motifs originated in a variety of applications, including woodcarvings and metalwork, jewelry, sculpture, and other decorative arts.
A delight to browse and applicable to many design projects, these distinctive images first appeared in a pioneering 1846 collection. The long-unavailable source volume abounds in decorations from many countries, styles, and periods. This select anthology offers the most appealing and unusual designs as a font of inspiration and for direct use by modern artists and artisans.
