Hundreds of beautiful decorative repeat patterns from the Nineteenth Century. Victorian designs from a variety of periodicals, books and catalogues from England, France, Germany and America including the Album de L'Ornemaniste, The Studio, Art Journal, and Decoration. The motifs reproduced here were taken from or intended for fabric, carpets, mosiacs, lace, tapestries, metalwork, and manuscripts, ceramics, stained glass, architectural details and paintings.
Drawing on native European design tradition as well as the exoticism of the East , the patterns in this volume are predominately florals and foliates, although there is also abundant abstract figuration, especially from Islamic sources.Illustrations:
