mini book but full of beauty
on 6 May 2014 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: PaperbackVerified Purchase
I enjoyed just looking at each illustration and reading the copy. I'll be "reading" the illustrations again. I'll be using some of the art as inspiration for a card I'll be designing for myself. It is missing a lot of the ancient Greek art, which is where many of these designs began, but that's OK. This book doesn't have to have everything in it. There are other books for that.

This is a great little book
on 24 April 2015 - Published on Amazon.com
This is a great little book. My only complaint is that it has been published in tiny print, making it nearly impossible to read without glasses or a magnifying glass. I do hate being reminded that my sight is no longer 20/20!

Great product at a competitive price.

Curves is not only beautifully organized but fascinating. The history, imagery, and information Ms. Delong included in this book helps the reader to see past just simple design and appreciate the detailed beauty of ironwork, tiles, or the domes of great cathedrals.
