If you need a scroll motif, there isn't a better variety to be found in any single source. Torn-paper scrolls, currency panels, neoclassical banners. The odd illustration that could be useful in its own right, a la the wonderful *Treasury of Book Ornament and Decoration* (ISBN 0486251675).

the other Dover Pictorial Archive came with discs, which made it easy to import into my computer for design projects.
due to the outstanding price i can understand why a disc was not included, so i was ready to scan the images i liked, but the paper they used for the book is low quality, the printing inks bleed and the true lines were lost, the images are some what blotchy. The book are great if your ready to rebuild the images in vector, but the images as is will not match up with the crisp edges of the fonts you use while designing. over all i'm happy because they were priced so low and i always re-build Dover work in illustrator, but if your looking to cut and past scanned images into photoshop, the Dover are will look soft.

As an artist, I'm called on from time to time to design banners. I saw this book in a tattoo shop and after leafing through it, I decided I had to have it. It's a fantastic book that covers a VERY wide range of banners. Very helpful.

I bought these for use in the tattoo shop I work at. They're full of excellent ideas to get people away from tacky flash.

Not much to say. The scrollwork in this book spans many styles and dates. It's very handy for quick reference if you're doing say, a tattoo design or t-shirt artwork. Many beautiful, unique and inspiring scrolls in here. A great buy for any artist!

Great resource to add to my library. Tons of shapes and interpretations, extremely useful in hand drawn logo design.

Not to sound off about this but...its a beautiful thing to see booked labeled as "useful & completely copyright free". Lots of designers these days seem to love the smoke & mirrors approach in trying to hide their inspiration and tools of the trade.

Love this book. Will continue to purchase more in this realm over the coming months.Thanks!

Some what limited for artists still offers good ideas for graphic design and research. If you design with photoshop you can scan in the pages. I trace.

good product for the money, tan color really makes the little black parts easy to see. Only minor complaint is its on the thin side.
