Borders in the style of medieval manuscripts, patterns based on Greek and Persian pottery, designs adapted from Venetian lace — this unique sourcebook abounds in splendid original ornaments. Its gorgeous black-and-white drawings include such diverse influences as German Gothic, Japanese, Arabic, Indian, Celtic, and ancient Roman art.
A pioneer of modern design, Christopher Dresser (1834–1904) was one of the Victorian era's most important and influential stylists, whose works are eagerly sought by artists and craftspeople. A botanist by training, Dresser was particularly skilled in the execution of floral motifs. This versatile collection of his designs can be easily adapted to art and craft projects, textiles, interior decoration, wall hangings, lacework, carvings, and much more.

Reprint of the B.T. Batsford, London, 1886 edition.
