The Grammar of Ornament

January 4, 2007 at 3:01 am Leave a comment

The University of Wisconsin has put online a copy of a 1910 printing of “The Grammar of Ornament.” Gotta love the fact that it is in public domain now.

EDIT:  I just found out that Illuminated-Books.com has Grammar of Ornament on their site as well, only with thumbnails of each page. They also have Owen Jones’ other illustrated books up as well with a brief bio. You can also read a brief bio of him at Univerity of Virgina Library of Fine Arts page. And as always you can learn more at wikipedia.
