Over 1200 dynamic, ethnic, decorative designs, from civilizations over 3000 years, are displayed here and on CD. Architecture, sculpture, painting, ceramics, mosaics, textiles, bronze, lacquer, leather, manuscripts, glass, metals, and typography were consulted from sources in Egypt, Assyria, Greece, Rome, China, Japan, India, Persia, Arabia, Turkey, Byzantinium, and Europe. The designs, most shown in beautiful color and exquisite detail, display Ancient, Gothic, Renaissance, and Classic styles. The accompanying text both describes each civilization and gives the sources for all the images, from their ruins, churches, museums, books, artifacts, and monuments around the world. This important collection will become a classic reference and source for designers of every type for years to come.
