Owen Jones' Chinese Ornament CD-ROM and Book
Owen Jones (1809-1874) was one of the most admired designers and architects of nineteenth century England. His monumental work, Examples of Chinese Ornaments Selected from Objects in the South Kensington Museum and Other Collections, is not only one of the most beautiful books on the decorative arts ever published, it stands as a definitive presentation of Chinese ornamentation and design. Now, the very best illustrations from Jones' prized edition have been meticulously hand-picked and gathered here in this sumptuous collection. Over 170 full-color designs offer a wide selection of florals, birds, and other motifs, each carefully reproduced from superb examples of porcelain and cloisonné. Affordably priced and of the highest quality, here is a valuable addition to the libraries of artists and designers as well as a versatile source of inspiration for crafters working in decoupage, textiles, needlework, wallpaper designs, and more. This book includes a CD-ROM containing 175 royalty-free images saved in high-quality JPEG format.
