Four-color ornamental illustrations fill the pages of Handbook of Decorative Motifs, offering a lively catalog of inspired design ideas and models for decorative painters, interior designers, and craftspeople.

Plants and flowers, borders and bouquets, popular art, chinoiserie, and faience, Koustrup, provides simple design techniques as well as more general tips on caring for plant and flower models to help ceramicists, cloth painters, embroiderers, and weavers adapt the motifs to their own styles and on their own mediums. From Kellinghusen faience patterns to floral garlands and the traditional Danish three tulip motif, this handbook is a rich source of inspiration for and artistic creators of all ability levels and persuasions.
