The Grammar of Ornament is the masterpiece of Owen Jones (1809-1874) a British architect and one of the most influential design theorists of the 19th century. Owen travelled to many ancient cities throughout Europe and the Middle East collecting inspirational ornamental designs. The result is one of the finest graphic design books ever produced. We hope you enjoy our high resolution digital version produced from our original chromolithographic antique book.

"True beauty results from that repose which the mind feels when the eye, the intellect, and the affections, are satisfied from the absence of any want."
