Treasury of Chinese Designs

Front Cover
Courier Corporation, Jan 1, 2006 - Design - 45 pages
Compiled from a variety of illustrated publications from China, this lavish treasury of traditional designs dates from prehistory to the present. Many of the patterns, which come in an array of sizes and styles, were originally conceived for decorating textiles, ceramics, metalwork, as well as stone tiles and other architectural elements.
Commercial artists, graphic designers, and hobbyists will find an abundant supply of useful borders, frames, and corners, as well as intricate floral displays, real and fabulous animals, geometric and abstract patterns, and two frequently used Chinese symbols for "double happiness" and "long life."
This book includes a CD-ROM containing 251 royalty-free images scanned at 600 dpi and saved in six different formats (TIFF, PICT, EPS, BMP, as well as Internet JPEG and GIF).
