The Little Book of Typographic Ornament

The Little Book of Typographic Ornament is exactly what it says: a small book crammed with decorations for use with typography. Whether that be a pattern, flourish, illustration or border, this book has it all.

Arranged into sections, the little book displays over 200 pages of ornaments, and a splash of colour adds some hierarchy to draw the eye.

It’s hard to choose a favourite, but I love these decorative banners reading ‘bought of’ – it makes no sense to me but they look amazing:

… and I also love this page of transportation: the detail in those bicycles is just brilliant.

So not only can you admire the ornaments, but thanks to a download code you’re able to use everything within the book – a brilliant idea. So, in true Blue Peter style…here’s somethings I made (quickly) earlier:

How cute is this book, right? What do you think to my use of decoration? What would you use the ornaments for?

The Little Book of Typographic Ornament is available to buy from 21st September 2015, so get yourself a copy and get creative!

. I was kindly sent this book by Laurence King, but as always all opinions are my own & I wouldn’t post anything I didn’t like 🙂 .
