This CD-ROM is the first complete reproduction of the most influential book on Ornamental Design ever published: the 1856 Folio Edition of the Grammar of Ornament (Owen Jones: Day & Son, London, 1856). Hailed as the "Masterpiece of all Chromolithographic books", it contains over 2,300 beautiful patterns from 20 cultures and epoches throughout history, including Oceana, Egypt, Assyria, Greece, Pompeii, Rome, Arabia, the Moors, Persia, India, Hindoo, China, the Renaissance, Italy, and the Celts. Intended for the serious computer artist, 3-D modeler, educator, scholar, and book fancier, it contains the entire text from the Grammar, 2,300 patterns in JPEG format, a color pattern manual, a specially commissioned illustrated introduction by 3 noted scholars, an applications section, and 640 redrawn royalty-free patterns in EPS, Illustrator and Freehand formats. The book's text and art are connected by 26,000 context sensitive hyperlinks and the user can move seamlessly between text and art with a click of the mouse. The book also has a visual index and on-line help.
