Design inspiration for artists, illustrators, needleworkers, and craftspeople abounds on every page of this extremely useful compendium of stencil designs, painstakingly reproduced from three nineteenth-century trade catalogs.
Choose from over 300 florals and foliates, both realistic and stylized, in an immense range of sizes, designs and configurations: borders, corners, cartouches, medallions, rosettes, allover patterns, and other formats. Crisply printed, ranging from bold and eye-catching to lacy and delicate in style, these vintage designs retain a freshness and appeal that will enhance wallpaper and textile designs, embroidery and appliqué, leather, metalwork, and other projects.
In short, you can use these designs in whole or in part to lend an elegant, decorative touch to almost any graphic or craft application.
Reprint of three nineteenth-century trade catalogs.
