This reproduction of "Plants and Their Application to Ornament", first published in 1897, presents each of twenty-four different flowering plants in three arts-and-crafts-style colour plates. A realistic botanical illustration is followed by two stylized plates detailing the plant motif's application to various decorative patterns and household objects. Published in association with the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, "Plants and Their Application to Ornament" is a rich visual treat as well as a record of a historical design moment with ongoing significance to artists and designers today. "Plants and Their Application to Ornament" is a lavish volume that includes both classic natural history-style botanical illustrations, and more abstract William Morris-type patterns for textiles and other applications.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Irises, chestnut trees, and even lowly dandelions morph into stylized Art Nouveau motifs in this reproduction of Plants and Their Application to Ornament. Originally published in 1897, the book's illustrations were made by students of Eug ne Grasset, a Swiss-born professor of decorative arts. Enjoy the book whole, or frame some of its oversize, full-color plates. O at Home Magazine, March 2008

In Plants and Their Application to Ornament, Eug ne Grasset beautifully arranges an array of lavish and lovely botanical illustrations from the classic 1897 design book. Vanity Fair, February 2008
