Influenced by 17th- through early-19th-century styles, French provincial designs embodied the simplest of decorative motifs -- quaint, small-scaled florals, sea creatures, birds, barnyard animals, Far Eastern figures, and pastoral scenes, among others. This rich archive contains a host of these images, adapted from period textiles, furniture, domestic accessories, and other authentic sources.
Included in the set are:
- One CD-ROM containing 224 high-quality, permission-free images scanned at 600 dpi and saved in six different formats (TIFF, PICT, EPS, BMP, as well as Internet-ready JPEG and GIF)
- A large-format 48-page book with every image on the CD-ROM printed large and clearly and numbered for easy reference
Also included on the CD-ROM is Dover Design Manager, a simple graphics editing program for Windows.
Affording graphic artists, hobbyists, and designers a host of practical uses, this handsome visual sourcebook will delight browsers and devotees of French Provincial design.
