Some of the images in this group are taken from the CD-Rom edition of The Grammar of Ornament, originally published in 1856 by Owen Jones (1808-74). Jones was a Welsh architect who at the age of twenty-three went on a tour of Turkey, Egypt, Sicily, and Spain. He returned with a large collection of drawings and plaster casts and eventually set up his own lithographic press to publish his works. The CD-Rom edition of The Grammar of Ornament is published and Octavo corporation, www.octavo.com. The images here are reproduced by kind permission of the publishers.
