The study of ornamental shapes allows identifying, comparing, and even situating chronologically different types of decors. Sometimes conceived by an architect, more often by a designer or artisan, a naturalist, geometric or dreamlike vocabulary concerns creators as historians.
This chronological and morphological study of ornament allows refining its analysis from the Antiquity to nowadays, and measuring its importance in art history. With a large iconographic corpus and a glossary of 630 ornament words, this book also is a repertoire suited to stimulate creation.
