Holistic Ornamentality Thesis Book

This book was designed and written as the culmination of my graphic design BFA Thesis. I chose to focus my thesis on the place of ornamentation in design in the past and today. In my essay I examined the associations and emotive meanings that styles embody and how our conception of taste and beauty have changed over time. The book is the result of this research and writing into a topic that continues to inspire and motivate me as a designer.
