Russ Abbott’s Ornamental Archive is now available at ornamentalarchive.com. Ornamental Archive is a spiral bound reference book for tattooers, designers, and craftspeople with 50+ Full color pages of original illustrations, and inspirational tattoos authored by one of the most innovative minds in tattooing.
“In creating the illustrations for the book “Ornamental Archive“, I sought out to create a useful reference guide for myself and other tattooers, designers, and craftspeople who were interested in ornament. I tried to think up alternative solutions to ornamental design challenges I had faced in the past. The illustrations were created with the tattoo artist in mind. There are frame designs, simple ornaments, shells, acanthus leaves, and roses. There are also several “ornament only” images that can be used as stand-alone tattoo designs.” Russ Abbott.
Ornamental Archive will be a hard bound foil stamped book, with a hidden spiral binding. This way the book will lay flat to make tracing easy and comfortable.
The book was funded through a KickStarter campaign; Special Thanks from Mr.Abbott to all who made this amazing resource possible. KickStarter books will ship first, in late August with the PRESALE orders to follow. Don’t sleep, order your copy today!
