Architect and decorator Owen Jones supervised the works at the Great Exhibition in London in 1851, and his decoration of the Crystal Palace was hailed as one of the great achievements of the exhibition. In 1856, Jones published his indispensable reference work, The Grammar of Ornament. Organized into twenty chapters with introductory text, its encyclopedic approach offers a unique vision of decorative styles throughout time. The richly detailed and varied illustrations make the Grammar of Ornament a must-have volume for curious-minded scholars, contemporary craftsmen, and artists. [via]
