Reviews - What do customers think about The World of Ornament?

Amazing book! Definitely worth the cost  Apr 6, 2008
This book is beautiful inside and out. I was so surprised, it's a HUGE book, quite literally. 500+ pages, yet the size of my pillow! I throughly enjoyed going through each and every page delighted with what I'm seeing.

It also comes with a DVD with all the images seen in the book. My only disappointment was that the images came in the same format as the book was set in- meaning some patterns were difficult to use. My hobby is to do graphic design, and sometimes I freelance, and sometimes I do it for fun. So this book was suppose to be amazing help for me, as the book and CD promised 'unrestricted use.' But again, a little difficult to extract all the patterns I would have wanted to use.
beautiful....  Jan 25, 2007
A simply beautiful book in all aspects of the word. Between the book and CD-Rom, worth every penny. Beautiful.
If you want to save some money. . .  Jan 13, 2007
Then check out Dover Publication's "Full-Color Picture Sourcebook of Historic Ornament: All 120 Plates from "L'Ornement Polychrome" and "Racinet's Historic Ornament in Full Color" since Taschen's book is basically just an oversized version of these modestly priced books. Of course, you'll have to scan and manipulate photos yourself since the Dover versions don't come in any digital format.
Heavy Duty   Jan 11, 2007
This book is heavy. Literally it must weigh 20lbs. It is also heavy with amazing content and incredible beauty and erudite commentary. The DVD is worth purchase price alone giving so much royalty free content. Look for tons of wrapping paper featuring these images to appear in stationary shops.
The best coffee table book ever !!!  Aug 17, 2006
Recently I have found myself drawn to graphics of all kinds. Being a huge fan of Tashen books and seeing this book on their website I decided to order it. Now at $200.00 this was quite a big purchase but this book is incredible. The color plates are beautiful and the information about the designs is very complete as well as interesting. This is a huge book! I think it must weigh in the neighborhood of 10 lbs. It is not a book to take to the beach for a little read. However, it is a book to get inspired by and it will inspire you no matter what your art medium is. This is a book that I will tresure for years to come and I am sure if you decide to invest in this book you will not be disapointed.
