“The lust to decorate and embellish” this is what Ernst Lehner sought to illustrate when he put together this superb collection of ornaments of the age of printing (the last 500 years) . Chosen from manuscripts and incunabula, rare books and atlases, design and pattern books of the old masters and craftsmen, and supplemented with material from pre-printing and from the Far and Middle East, these ornaments and alphabets are a rich treasury for artists and designers, typographers, printers, art students and amateurs.

The book is divided into eight chronological sections: 40 examples of title pages and frontispieces, from the first ornamented title page (Venice, 1476) to a Kolomon Moser design (1904) ; 21 initials and whole alphabets; 24 pages of fleurons and borders (1478-1890) ; 13 headpieces and vignettes, including 15th-century calligraphy and Aubrey Beardsley art nouveau designs; 15 silhouettes and shadow figures, largely from Asia 22 applied ornaments and pattern book samples (lace and embroidery designs, a needlepoint design by Diirer, etc.) ; 47 pages of sample scripts and scrolls, most from Renaissance Europe, but others from Arabic sources; and dozens of heraldic ornaments and allegorical cartouches used originally on book plates, maps, family trees, seals, etc. and ranging from the seal of Edward the Confessor (1043-1066) to the book stamp of Pope Pius VI (1775-1799). Each section is introduced with notes on uses, history and other backgrounds and with bibliographic identifications of the material illustrated.

Reproduced in a large, clear format many of the more than 750 individual items are a full-page in size the 220 pages of illustrations offer unusual design material for commercial users, who may reproduce material directly from the book. They also offer an illustrated history of book ornament that is carefully researched, and selected with a connoisseur’s eye.
