In 1856, British architect Owen Jones published The Grammar of Ornament
, a design "sourcebook" cataloging architectural decorations and ornamental motifs from around the world. Four lavish plates from that seminal volume have been reproduced to create these stunning 5"x7" note cards, colorfully intricate designs from a Pompeiian mosaic, a medieval illuminated manuscript, an Indian book cover, and a Renaissance enamel masterpiece. The images provide a beautiful foundation for all of your correspondence, from thank-you notes and messages of condolence to everyday letters and personal travelogues. Boxed set of twenty blank cards (five each of four designs) with envelopes.
