This classic book is considered the definitive guide to ornamental design. Containing over 2,000 original engravings complete with informative and insightful descriptions, this wonderful book is a must-have for enthusiasts of ethnographic art, and constitutes an invaluable tool for those working in jewellery, fashion, interior design, or textiles. Providing insights into the history and modern popularity of these ethnographic patterns, this book is informative and beautiful in equal measures, making it a great addition to collections of allied literature. Owen Jones (1809 - 1874) was an English-born Welsh architect who is considered to be one of the most influential design theorists of the nineteenth century. Originally published in 1856, this book has been chosen for republication due to its cultural and educational value. Many vintage texts such as this are increasingly hard to come by and expensive, and it is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition. It comes complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.
