Another compendium of typographic ornaments, less comprehensive than Luidl & Huber, but with more extensive historical essays, and with the great advantage of being hand printed in letterpress, thus giving an authentic "feel" to the ornaments depicted. Includes many ornaments of an "arabesque" character.
