This is a re-issue of Owen Jones' classic book on design which was first published in 1856. It was then considered the definitive sourcebook on ornamental motifs and it has definitely stood the test of time. Beautiful and informative, this is a wonderful collection of diverse designs from around the world. This is the ideal reference book for anyone working in decorative design fields such as jewellery, fashion, interior design and textiles.

Product Description:

A reissue of the design classic that inspired and informed designers and architects, from William Morris to Frank Lloyd Wright, with modern commentaries by Iain Zaczek.


'Beautiful and informative and truly global in outlook, this is a fascinating collection of diverse designs from around the world' --The Designer Magazine (July 2008)

'For 100 years this would still be one of the few unpotronising references to what was called until very recently ethnographic, or more dismissively, primitive art. That alone makes this amazing book one (remembering Alkan's misadventure) to die for.' --The Royal Academy Magazine
