The Complete Book Of Art Nouveau Designs
Posted by Henry in Medium: Craft, Publisher: Search Press, Series: Pattern Books, Subject: Design on Feb 28, 2008
This book consists of a huge variety of outline patterns you can copy or trace and include in a any craft project. Aimed at those who want to make rather than draw, it means that you can concentrate on what you do best rather then being let down by skills you don’t have and, frankly, don’t need.
The first dozen or so pages are taken up with photographs of various project ideas, with a brief description of each but no detailed process instructions. To be fair, this is not a how-to book and anything further would only take up space that’s best devoted to the matter in hand, the designs.
So, if you want to make a card, fabric, pottery or glass project based on art nouveau but don’t have the skill or the resources to do the basic drawing, this book is for you. It’s not really something you can review in the traditional sense. It does what it says and, if this is what you want, then it’s for you.
