2600 Typographic Ornaments and Designs (Interests, Identities, and Institutions in Comparative Politics)

2600 Typographic Ornaments and Designs (Interests, Identities, and Institutions in Comparative Politics) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Reproduced from a rare turn-of-the-century German catalog, these 2,600 eye-catching typographic ornaments and designs comprise a rich treasury of ornate frames, headpieces, tailpieces, title pages, spot art, scrollwork, and other ornamental motifs. The broad array of subjects, sizes, and styles represented will be invaluable to illustrators and commercial artists in search of permission-free graphics to enhance books, magazines, newsletters, menus, posters, catalog copy, advertisements, and a host of other print projects.

Included are bold black-and-white designs recalling the free-form style of Jugendstil (the German term for Art Nouveau), along with a wealth of detailed, evocative images of couples dancing, landscapes, bridges, railway tunnels, locomotives, sailing ships, rowing regattas, Poseidon and other Greek gods, showgirls, dandies, castles, fairies and elves, cherubs playing musical instruments, animals, floral borders, and much more. This collection of vintage designs is not only a rich source of immediately usable art, but also an entertaining volume to browse through—a fount of inspiration and delight for artists and lovers of antique illustrations.
