Dover Publications,
Pub. Date:
This is probably the largest and most varied collection of borders and frames ever compiled for the use of artists and designers. Drawn from numerous first-rate sources, this book covers practically every style, mood, and form as interpreted through the whole range of art movements and historical periods. Many designs were originally used in typesetters' catalogues (American and European), in books, on title pages, text pages, or just as fanciful illustrations. Others were found on tradesmen's cards, menus, advertisements, and certificates. The variety is seemingly endless, and includes representative examples of Renaissance, Baroque, Rococo, French Empire, Victorian, neo-Greek, Roman, Egyptian, Arab, Pre-Raphaelite, Art Nouveau, and Art Deco styles. You will find Greek frets, grape vines, floral arrangements, architectural and geometric elements, wreaths, figures, and allegorical borders representing such concepts as time and justice, and hundreds of miscellaneous decorative devices that offer a multitude of imaginative applications.
