More than 160 exquisitely rendered color illustrations offer a fabulous array of decorative borders and panels in a tremendous variety of styles: Byzantine, Roman, Gothic, Renaissance, Louis XIV, and other historical fashions.
Many of these enchanting images are drawn from Christopher Dresser's Studies in Design, a landmark in home-decorating stylebooks. Dresser's compilations of unusual designs from far-flung sources — including Egypt, Morocco, and the Far East — exercised an enormous influence upon his Victorian contemporaries and subsequent generations. Images from his book, together with selections from a nineteenth-century French album and other pictorial collections of the era, afford a wealth of delights for art enthusiasts as well as inspiration for designers and crafters.

Dover original selection from Album du Peintre en Bâtiment, N. Glaise, Ducher et Cie, Paris, 1885, and Studies in Design, Christopher Dresser, Cassell, Peter and Galpin, London, 1876.
