Pugin's Gothic Ornament: The Classic Sourcebook of Decorative Motifs with 100 Plates
The work of August Charles Pugin (1762 - 1832), the architect most closely associated with the gothic revival is presented here, in a reprint of a rare early edition. Dating from 1828-31 this work reveals the superb free hand drawings of earlier decoration for which Pugin is noted, and includes a wide variety of architectural ornament, from wreaths, crowns, soffits, gables, leaf ornamentation, borders, buttresses, statues, capitals, spandrels, wooden paterae, filials, grotesques, misericord ornaments and a vast selection of cathedral ornamentation and religious architectural design. Original buildings which act as sources include Kenilworth Castle, Eltham Palace, Rouen Cathedral and New College Chapel at Oxford. A major sourcebook of images.
