A few posts ago I mentioned what I called the New Ornamentalism. (internal link) I worked around a skyscraper in the 80s that was in that style. I just got the 1983 title Ornamentalism by Jensen and Conway. Ten dollars will get you a copy at Abe.com. I don’t know what happened to this trend, although some of the more outrageous elements are fully on view here in Las Vegas. Oh, and if you look closely you will see my socked feet!
