A classic Seventeenth Century sourcebook for architectural and pattern detail. These designs show the best of Baroque ornament derived from the work of Jacques Stella, a champion of this exuberant and ornate style, who drew on inspiration from years of study in Florence and Rome.
The images are both lush and elaborate, but equally refined and delicate, with themes particularly emphasising Floral and Natural forms such as buds, leaves, horns of plenty, shells, shells, sea creatures and animals. These are typically worked up into repeat patterns, motifs and borders, ideal for direct reproduction or for use as inspiration.Illustrations:
