A celebration in quote and pattern of the 14th century art of adorning objects.
Adornment originated in the fourteenth century as the action of making someone or something attractive by adding decoration. It is also those details in design that create evocative rooms, intriguing structures, and beautiful landscapes. The Art of Adornment is lavishly illustrated with design patterns and "adorned" with quotes about design, fashion, and art. It's the perfect gift for anyone who understands that "the gods are in the details."
