The Grammar Of Ornament, Book
This is a The Grammar of Ornament.
Christopher Dresser’s first published works were drawings, such as this one with leaves and vines, that he contributed to The Grammar of Ornament. The presence of botanical plates in his teacher Owen Jones’s guide to design reinforced the author’s belief that nature in its beauty and underlying order provided the best source of design inspiration.
