The World of Ornament

The World of Ornament


Pattern Primer

The ultimate decorative resource

Discover a world of decorative ideas with this compendium of history’s most elegant patterns and ornamental designs.

The World of Ornament brings together the two greatest encyclopedic collections of ornament of the 19th century: Auguste Racinet’s L’Ornement polychrome Volumes I and II (1875–1888) and Auguste Dupont-Auberville’s L’Ornement des tissus (1877) to provide one lavish source book spanning jewelry, tile, stained glass, illuminated manuscript, textile, and ceramic ornament.

Encompassing classical, Egyptian, Greek, Roman, Etruscan, Asian and Middle Eastern, as well as European designs from medieval times through the 19th century, this compilation of cultures and aesthetics offers a primary reference for artists, historians, designers, and patternmakers, and anyone engaged in decorative design and impact.

David Batterham has been an antiquarian bookseller in London since 1965. He specializes in books and journals on the graphic arts, ornament, fashion, and caricature with an emphasis on work from France and Spain.

Sehr umfangreiches Werk

Matthias,22 dicembre 2021
Sehr umfangreiches, fast wissenschaftliches Werk aber in dieser Version zu klein. Ein größeres Format wäre passender gewesen

Inspiration source

Un référentiel large de connaissances

Charly,27 ottobre 2021
Beaucoup de petits détails, contextualisations et précisions historiques qui sont très appréciables

A tool for exploration

Jennifer,27 ottobre 2021
This book is a convenient tool to help you discover fascinating ornaments from various cultures, civilzations and times. It is highly interesting to discover connections between the visual cultures of different regions and how specific motives migrate through time and space. I wish there were also examples of south Asian ornaments. Also I missed Sub-Saharan and Indigenous American ornamentation. I hope that future editions will include these cultures as well.

Detailed & interesting
