The Standard Scroll Book

One of the work-related searches at the Internet Archive this week was for scrolls…which I eventually realised should have been for ribbons since it was those text-bearing lengths of graphic ribbon I was looking for. I didn’t find anything useful but the search error did turn up this small book of borders, frames and scrollwork from 1876. The book scanners credit one David H. Moser as the person responsible although in what capacity—compiler, artist or both—we’re not told. I’m still being asked to create highly decorated designs so this will no doubt prove useful very soon. View or download the whole book here.
