New Grammar of Ornament – Thomas Weil

In New Grammar of Ornament, Thomas Weil compares current ornamental objects with the results of archaeological research on ornamental artefacts and concludes that there is an anthropological constant. He categorises the variety of ornamental forms used worldwide and places them in a major art and cultural-historical context. More than 160 years after Owen Jones’s influential book the Grammar of Ornament, Weil derives a new grammar by differentiating minimal, geometric and floral ornaments in over four hundred images.

And . . . it just looks really good! Lars Müller books always have a distinctive look and this book is no exception. A great gift for anyone interested in graphic, pattern and design.
