Plants and Their Application to Ornament: A Nineteenth-Century Design Primer : Book by Eugene Grasset
This reproduction of "Plants and Their Application to Ornament", first published in 1897, presents each of twenty-four different flowering plants in three arts-and-crafts-style colour plates. A realistic botanical illustration is followed by two stylized plates detailing the plant motif's application to various decorative patterns and household objects. Published in association with the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, "Plants and Their Application to Ornament" is a rich visual treat as well as a record of a historical design moment with ongoing significance to artists and designers today. "Plants and Their Application to Ornament" is a lavish volume that includes both classic natural history-style botanical illustrations, and more abstract William Morris-type patterns for textiles and other applications.
