The designs in this book have been derived from floor mosaics and wall decorations in a number of Italian churches, all of them architectural masterpieces. Most of these churches were built between the 11th and 14th centuries AD. One exception is the Church of San Vitale in Ravenna, which was built as early as the 6th century AD and is a prime example of Byzantine architecture and decoration.

Decorative Patterns from Italy contains a selection of designs derived mostly from floor decorations found in some of Italy’s most beautiful mediæval and early Renaissance churches. For this book, these patterns have been carefully digitised and included on the enclosed CD-Rom.

Agile Rabbit Editions contain stunning images for use as a graphic resource, or inspiration. All the illustrations are stored in high-resolution format on the enclosed free CD-ROM and are ready to use for professional quality printed media and web page design. The pictures can also be used to produce postcards, or to decorate your letters, flyers, etc. They can be imported directly from the CD into most design, image-manipulation, illustration, word-processing and e-mail programs; no installation is required. For most applications, single images can be used free of charge. Please consult our section on image rights for conditions.
