Amid the rugged natural beauty of southern Spain's Sierra Nevada mountain range stands the Alhambra, one of the world's great architectural gems. The grand medieval palace arose in the fourteenth century, and it remains a peerless example of Moorish art that developed in a European setting, apart from direct Byzantine influence. This splendid volume ventures inside the stone walls, gates, and towers for a lavishly illustrated survey of the castle's hidden treasures—the majestic decorations within its grand halls, corridors, patios, and balconies. This unequaled collection was assembled by the influential Victorian artist and architect Owen Jones, who introduced his contemporaries to a thrilling range of interior designs from around the world. Jones' full-color plates expertly reproduce the intricate, elegant patterns of the palace's windows, ceilings, wall panels, door arches, and porticos. Unique and affordable, this volume offers a magnificent source of inspiration for art and architectural designs.

This beautiful, highly influential book, long a classic in its field, remains today one of the most comprehensive and best-organized presentations of historic ornamental design. The original 100 color plates, meticulously reproduced here from the rare original folio edition, present a dazzling spectrum of copyright-free design motifs from both ancient and modern cultures. The Grammar of Ornament features designs from around the world: the West to the Far East and many cultures in between. Graphic and fine artists will find nearly three thousand designs rendered in fine detail from a variety of sources: Greek and Roman borders and mosaics Celtic designs taken from manuscripts Motifs from medieval paintings and stained glass Floral patterns from Chinese porcelain, wood, and fabrics Illuminated script from the Koran Ornamentation from Turkish mosques and tombs Moorish designs from the Alhambra Connoisseurs of art and design will find the book's rich display of decorative motifs an endless source of contemplative pleasures. The work of the celebrated English designer and architect Owen Jones, The Grammar of Ornament, initially published in 1856, was the first book to present a global and historical range of ornament in color, the first to display "primitive" art for its design content, and among the first to suggest nature as a basic design source. Widely used and circulated, this prophetic work ushered in a major change in Western aesthetics and heralded the move towards nonrepresentational art. Its value as a beautifully organized and produced pictorial museum of historic ornamental design remains unsurpassed.

In a wide-ranging and richly illustrated book, the authors begin by tracing the ways ornament has been used over the last five centuries, the rules of decorum and etiquette associated with it, and the social, moral and spiritual values it has represented. They examine how architecture set the agenda for ornament in the Renaissance, and how printed images carried a common vocabulary of ornament throughout the Western world. They survey the personal side of ornament, both in dress and in the domestic interior - a private expression of the self and a public statement of social and cultural status. They look at ornament in the public domain - from the lavish decoration and symbolism of a town pageant to the logos of today's corporate industry - and show how the ever-evolving role of ornament is to invent and embody the collective spirit of communities at work and at leisure. They conclude by discussing how the Western tradition of ornament has responded to and absorbed 'exotic' African and Asian motifs: Moresque motifs of the Near East and such familiar designs as the 'Paisley' and Willow" patterns.

This well-known book was prepared more than 75 years ago by two British architects, and its reputation has grown steadily since. The Audsleys' clear rendering of ornaments and designs from a wide variety of sources and national traditions, their excellent sense of space and proportion, and their straightforward execution of these ornaments in line have made the collection among the most valuable of its kind. The 60 plates contain over 250 large-scale line drawings, mostly executed by the authors. The designs and patterns shown are derived from architectural decorative motifs, textile designs, patterns from ceramics and tiles, and more from Egypt, Greece, Italy, Japan, Persia, Medieval Europe, and other places. A brief text specifies sources for many of the designs, and captions identify national origin and often the original color scheme.
