"One of the first books to be lavishly illustrated with 100 coloured plates by the chromolithograph process, it showed some 1,000 examples of ornamental art. It virtually introduced western artists to Islamic decorative themes, thus providing an alternative to naturalistic decoration by demonstrating the beauty of flat, abstract and geometric surface ornament. Jones's remarkable eye tor decoration included the ability to analyze the primitive art of the Pacific with a welcome absence of the prejudiced condescension so common in the Victorian age." — Lionel Lambourne, p. 15
