Pictorial Encyclopedia of Historic Ornament
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. Permission-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.
