Elevating the ornament

A new book has just been release titled The Handy Book of Artistic Printing: Collection of Letterpress Examples with Specimens of Type, Ornament, Corner Fills, Borders, Twisters, Wrinklers, and other Freaks of Fancy. This book is filled with history of the heyday of letterpress printing for commercial purposes as well as samples of decorative excesses. What's not to like?
