From Owen Jones' 'Grammar of Ornament', 1868. Welshman Owen Jones first published his monument to design, the Grammar of Ornament, in instalments for subscribers. For his lushly illustrated plates, Jones's design motifs drew from nineteen different cultures including the ornament of Oceania, ancient Greece and Rome, Byzantium, Renaissance Italy, and Moorish Spain. Throughout the second half of the nineteenth century, the Grammar remained an influential source for the production of wallpaper, furniture, architectural decoration, and fabric worldwide.
