Textul de pe ultima copertă

This generously illustrated book brings back into print a turn-of-the-century catalog depicting over 1,000 ornamental sheet metal designs offered to architects, interior designers, and home builders by a major American supplier. Today's architectural historians, renovation specialists, and vintage home enthusiasts will find it an indispensable reference guide to the embellishments that were an essential component of Victorian era homes and public buildings. Artists and designers will find here an enormous wealth of striking ornamentation for use in art and craft projects.
A total of 639 line illustrations and 156 halftones in line detail a grand assortment of ornamental design: drapery; vases and wreaths; eagles, lion heads, and gargoyles; ribbons, garland, and festoons; brackets and medallions; capitals, finials, and banisters; sunbursts, weather vanes, and much more. The measurement available and original 1900 prices are included for each item.
Graphic designers as well as architectural enthusiasts will find these drawings and photographs of great value for the exacting, close-up detail they provide of the rich motifs that decorated turn-of-the-century parlor ceilings, staircases, door frames, entrance halls, porches, fireplaces, and other interior and exterior elements.
