This book and CD-Rom set contains a stunning collection of repeating patterns from the Middle Ages, the Renaissance and the Baroque period. The earlier designs often show domestic animals and animals associated with hunting, such as dogs and deer, or mythical and fantastic beasts, such as unicorns. The later designs are dominated by floral compositions. All periods covered in this book include designs with a clear geometric element.
All designs in this book have been taken from authentic period originals, for the most part from tapestries and other textiles. The often highly intricate repeating quality of the designs makes them suitable for limitless patterns and an infinite range of applications.
Agile Rabbit Editions contain stunning images for use as a graphic resource, or inspiration. All the illustrations are stored in high-resolution format on the enclosed free CD-ROM and are ready to use for professional quality printed media and web page design. The pictures can also be used to produce postcards, or to decorate your letters, flyers, etc. They can be imported directly from the CD into most design, image-manipulation, illustration, word-processing and e-mail programs; no installation is required. For most applications, single images can be used free of charge. Please consult our section on image rights for conditions.
