In grad school I discovered the Grammar of Ornament, a book every designer should know. This divine collection of decorative design from Asia, Africa, and Europe was curated by architect and designer Owen Jones in the mid 19th century. Grammar of Ornament is a rich documentation of global design aesthetics and a beautiful historical record of visual culture. This library of ornamentation continues to be a resource of inspiration for the graphic, textile, fashion, and architectural design industries.
Got a lot of new work to upload soon.
