Book, Floriated Ornament: A Series of Thirty-One Designs
A. W. N. Pugin was a key figure of British design reform and a vocal admirer of the medieval gothic style. Floriated Ornament, a collection of original designs for stenciling, was intended to demonstrate the beauty achievable through the gothic approach of stylizing botanical forms based on direct observation. The Government School of Design, where Dresser was a student, advanced the teachings of Pugin’s Floriated Ornament.
