Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This dazzling collection of more than 1,500 illustrations—most in full color—is one of the great anthologies of historic ornament and design, on a par with Owen Jones's Grammar of Ornament and Racinet's Historic Ornament. A veritable treasure chest of royalty-free images, arranged chronologically, the designs range from Roman architecture and sculpture, Byzantine embroidery, and illuminated manuscripts from the Middle Ages; to Italian glass painting, pottery, and French tapestries from the Renaissance; and mosaic floors, painted plasterwork, and metal ornaments from later periods. An extraordinary sourcebook for artists, art students, and commercial designers, this compendium of decorative motifs will appeal as well to hobbyists and lovers of fine art. Over 1,500 color and black-and-white illus.

Synopsis:

One of the great anthologies of historic ornament and design, on a par with Owen Jones' Grammar of Ornament and Racinet's Historic Ornament, Dolmetsch's dazzling collection of over 1500 illustrations — most in full color — is a veritable treasure chest of permission-free images. Artists, designers, and hobbyists will also find design inspiration on every page, with images of artistic ornaments from antiquity through the nineteenth century, when this volume was originally assembled. Arranged chronologically, coverage begins in the ancient world, with designs from Roman architecture and sculpture, mosaic floors of Pompeii, and Byzantine embroidery. From the Middle Ages come illuminated manuscripts and stained glass decorations. Items dating from the Renaissance and later include Italian glass painting, pottery, and lace; French tapestry and block printing; and German metal work and weaving.
