The World of Ornament
Taschen, $160

A compendium of history’s most elegant and beautiful patterns and ornamental designs at your fingertips – for perusal or download anytime, in high-resolution format. World of Ornament brings together the two greatest encyclopedic collections of ornament of the 19th century: Racinet’s L’Ornement polychrome Volumes I and II (1875-1888) and Dupont-Auberville’s L’Ornement des tissus (1877).

Artists, historians, and art lovers will appreciate this lavish source and idea book, and interior designers and patternmakers will be delighted that all of the ornamental designs may be used and reproduced without restriction.

Includes exclusive access to image database: high-resolution images of all individual ornaments downloadable for unrestricted use.
