The elements of design: a practical encyclopedia of the decorative arts from the Renaissance to the present
In the bestselling tradition of The Elements of Style, The Elements of Design is a comprehensive visual survey of the design styles that have had the greatest impact on the decorative arts in the Western world. With more than 3,000 prints, photographs, and line drawings, the book covers five centuries of the Western decorative arts tradition, including Renaissance, Baroque, Rococo, Regency, Gothic, Art Nouveau, Art Deco, Modernism, and the Space Age.
The key elements of the Western decorative arts tradition are explored chronologically. Each chapter begins with a broad introduction to the era, summarizing its key style features. Within the chapter there follows close examination of individual objects, including ceramics, glass, silver and metalwork, furniture, and textiles. All the items illustrated form a visual vocabulary of each design movement. The book also includes biographies of innovative designers, information on conservation and maintenance, and a comprehensive glossary of design terms.
Compiled by a team of experts under the guidance of design specialists Noël Riley and Patricia Bayer, The Elements of Design is an indispensable reference work for collectors, design historians, interior decorators, set designers, and all those interested in our decorative arts heritage.

The Elements of design: a practical encyclopedia of the decorative arts from the Renaissance to the presentBrugeranmeldelse - Book Verdict
Edited by decorative arts writer Riley (The Victorian Design Source Book), this visual reference outlines the history of design styles in North America and Europe. Divided into chronological sections, it begins with the Renaissance (here defined as 1400-1600) and culminates in 2000. Within each section are subsections on furniture, ceramics, glass, metalwork, textiles, and so forth. Various sections were written by different authors, and as in all such cooperative efforts there is a lack of continuity. It would have been helpful had the editor laid down clear guidelines as to what each section should include. Furthermore, the text lacks any indication that styles did, of course, carry over from one period to another and does not discuss how an earlier style evolved over time. Nevertheless, a surprising amount of information is presented. The hundreds of photographs and drawings are clearly labeled, and the glossary and index are well done and helpful. Despite the few flaws, this is an excellent sourcebook for those wishing to obtain an overview of the dominant styles in each period.-Martin Chasin, Adult Inst., Bridgeport, CT ...
