700 Victorian Ornamental Designs
The expert engraver F. Knight's creations defined the lavish style of ornamentation associated with Victorian design. This collection of his work, - reproduced directly from a rare original 19th century edition - contains a fabulous assortment of images: elaborate wall murals with trompe l'oeil effects of chandeliers and fountains; scenes of hunters, flanked by mythological figures; idealised damsels in rustic settings, framed by majestic swirls and garlands of flowers and ivy; and numerous other florid designs.

Full of motifs in a variety of sizes and styles, this volume is a versatile source of designs both floral (leaves, running vines and blossoms) and animal (realistic and grotesque).
