the grammar of ornament

EricGjerge has an amazing set on Flickr where he has uploaded images from Owen Jones’ book The Grammar of Ornament. I could look at all the prints and patterns forever – there is so much inspiration on each page! Check out the whole set for many more awesome pictures like the ones above, in bigger sizes too!

I love this book. It’s like the ultimate design reference source book.

This book was hugely important for me at one point. If you like this, look into Taschen’s massive The World of Ornament. It is huge and comes with digital versions of every page.
