Description: The Cooper Hewitt museum's library and archive contains 5,000 rare books pertaining to ornament, architecture, and the decorative arts. A selection of these rare books forms the subject of this volume.

Stephen H. Van Dyk examines how decorative arts and design books have served as an inspiration to designers, as tools for instruction and as works of art in themselves. Presented in this title are remarkable illustrated books, examples of fine bindings, children's books, pop-ups, and caricatures.

Rare books also provide insights into the environmental factors that shape the designs of a society or era. By illustrating examples from the Museum's books on history, culture, etiquette, and travel guides, Van Dyk shows how such books played key roles in defining acceptable taste and standards of design.
