Product description

Review

Mar 06 This is a new venture for Search Press - images from their Design Source books on CD. The CD contains an index in PDF (Adobe Acrobat) format which contains thumbnails of all the images and the images themselves are TIFFs (suitable for PCs or Macs) in a separate folder. Since we are encouraged to browse using, for example, Windows Explorer, the purpose of the PDF index is not clear. This CD contained 90-odd images. Reproduction of the images is permitted but not for commercial use - fair enough. The images themselves are large and, although readable in newer paint programs, we experienced difficulty testing Paint Shop Pro versions earlier than 8. Since many people still use version 7, this may lead to problems. The answer is to read the desired image in Windows Paint and re-save it (still as TIFF). This CDROM is a good idea, especially for those of us who design on the computer. The images are clear and prove a good starting point for design. A very good price, too - great for a mini gift.

Pages of clear, simple Art Nouveau designs including some lovely lettering examples.
Used it with my Year 6 class and it inspired some great mock-stained glass window designs. Some children opted to trace the designs, others used them as a starting point, adapting them or combining designs. Useful teaching tool.

...But what the hey? If you need some ready made templates to adorn your creative efforts, you can do infinitely worse than use these. And you don't have to slavishly copy them, do you?
I've got three of the series in the Art Nouveau genre, and very useful they are too.
Get some.
Go on, go on, go on.
Frothy, man.

I accidentally entered 2 in qty and ended up with two books. However, I was so impressed I gave one to my sister, who does patchwork quilting, while I saved the other for myself for card making!
