The Grammar of Ornament : A Visual Reference of Form and Colour in Architecture and the Decorative Arts, Hardback Book

The Grammar of Ornament : A Visual Reference of Form and Colour in Architecture and the Decorative Arts Hardback

Description

First published in 1856, The Grammar of Ornament remains a design classic.

As Owen Jones, its creator, admired the array of ornament he encountered on his global travels, so his distaste grew for mongrel design.

The result was the Grammar. Each illustration is allotted its place within a cultural context and illuminated in this new edition by a contemporary commentary.
