So..I wanted to share with everyone my favorite resource..my old reliable, “The Grammar of Ornament” by Owen Jones. This book is a MUST HAVE, and although you can view the entire book online through the U0W, I really recommend purchasing a copy for your desk. The inspiration is endless and is a great read when the ideas are just not flowing. My favorite section is the “Greek Ornament,” does anyone else have a favorite?
