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.

"William Morris continues to be celebrated as one of the most imaginative and lyrical designers of the nineteenth century. Many of his patterns are still in production today, and his evocative flowing lines have offered inspiration to succeeding generations of applied artists." "The twenty-six plates in this collection have been chosen to represent a broad cross-section of Morris's patterns for furnishing textiles and wallpapers, and the large format makes it possible to study the designs as they were first created. Norah Gillow's Introduction provides an informative background to the artist and the work of his company, Morris and Co. This superb reference book, offering the best of Morris's beautiful interior designs in their original forms, is sure to appeal to artists, designers and art historians."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
