This book is part of a series that covers the decorative styles prevalent in Europe since the beginning of the western calendar. The series focuses on two dimensional designs. With the Renaissance in the 15th & 16th Centuries came a revival of interest in the classical arts of Ancient Greece and Rome. Although the sculpture and architectural ornamentation during the Renaissance tended to be complex, two dimensional patterns were often more subdued.

Reviews - What do customers think about Renaissance (Agile Rabbit Editions)?
Not for professionals Oct 23, 2006
I bought this book/CD-ROM intending to use the patterns in my graphic design work. I had assumed (wrongly) that these images would be permission-free. After receiving the book I learned that use of Agile Rabbit Editions' graphics in a professional capacity requires permission from the publisher. I have found this permission process takes several days--a major problem when working under a short deadline. Depending on the usage, there may also be a fee in addition to the initial cost of the book. If you want a ready-to-use copyright-free graphic resource, then you're better off sticking with the books put out by Dover Publishing.
