Viking and Slavic Ornamental Design. With Rus Add-On

Catalog number: BCD109

Your Price: 19.50 €

   

Szczecin 2009.

As an author and publisher, I would like to offer you a new book, "Viking and Slavic Ornamental Design. Graphical Catalogue with Rus Add-On." - a catalogue of 343 authentic graphic designs in 2D. Collated mainly from the Viking Age but in some cases later (C8th-C12th), they are sourced not only from Scandinavia, but also from Germany, Central Europe (eg. Wolin) and Russia. They've been drawn from a vast selection of artifacts - hilts, crossguards, pottery, jewellery, manuscripts, bone and wood carvings etc. Each and every pattern has an English description with its date, origin, place it was found, and meaning, where possible).

Als Autor und Herausgeber möchte ich Ihnen ein Buch "Viking and Slavic ornamental design. Graphical Catalogue with Rus Add-On." vorstellen. Es ist ein Katalog mit 343 historischen Bilder in 2 dimensionaler Abbildung.

Alle Modelle kommen aus der Vikinger-Ära bzw. aus dem 8.-12. Jahrhundert, und zwar nicht nur aus Skandinavien, sondern auch aus Deutschland, Zentral-Europa (einschließlich Wolin) und Russland. Die Abbildungen haben wir für Sie aus einer Vielzahl von Artefakten aus der Epoche der Griffe, Schwerte, Keramik, Schmuck, Manuskripte, Knochen- und Hörnerprodukte nachgezeichnet. Jedes Design ist auf Englisch beschrieben und enthält Angaben zum Fundort und -datum, und evtl. auch die Bedeutung des Motivs.

From Introduction to 1st Edition:

MATERIAL SELECTION

All of the graphics presented in this catalogue have one common denominator. All of them can be traced back to the Early Middle Ages, the period in European history beginning with the Great Migration (V-VI c.) until the end of XII c., when the European continent finally saw the feudal system being developed into a fully functional entity, recognized as a feature of the Middle Ages proper. During that time, a variety of ethnics and nations were shaped, some of which belonged to "barbarian" culture, especially among European tribes that remained in contact with Ancient, Mediterranean culture widely spread in Western Europe. Therefore, a different, geographical aspect of the presented material ought to be taken into consideration, aside from the period in which the imagery occurred. Accordingly, the imagery of choice for this particular catalogue is the one originating in Central, Eastern and Northern Europe, that is a region which was the last to enter a sphere of influence of the Roman Catholic (or Orthodox as was the case with Rus) Christianity, thus retaining its genuine, pagan character.

THE RECIPIENT

The catalogue is intended for artists and researches alike, people genuinely interested in old cultures, designers, digital artists, tattooists and people inspired by aesthetics of the Early Middle Ages. We expect that the booklet will also gain popularity among historical re-enactors, looking for new, uncommon motifs to decorate their Slavic or Viking outfit, the group to which the author himself belongs to and is thus well acquainted with difficulties involving interesting decoration of historical garments, furniture and leatherwork. These and other problems inspired creation of this catalogue, with an intention to ease life of modern warriors and promote more variety in ornamentation as well as awareness of styles and periods which these ornaments were once part of. With this in mind, it is expected that re-enactors will have a better choice of ornamentation for the region and time that they are recreating, which, in turn, is bound to set a more realistic mood of the period. The catalogue may also be of interest to historians or even Art historians, Art students and anybody involved in appreciation of unfamiliar beauty and ancient aesthetics. The creators of this catalogue wish for Early Medieval stylistics to find its place in our aesthetic awareness and modern tastes, and also to find more value in the Art of Early Middle Ages that is still largely neglected and unappreciated.

Viking and Slavic Ornamental Design vol. 3

Catalog number: BCD127

Your Price: 18.00 €

   

We are back with another volume of Viking and Slavic Ornamental Design. Nine years have passed since the original release of Volume I.In recent years, mass culture has reminded its viewers, readers, listeners and gamers of the existence of Vikings – and also Slavs. The growing importance of re-enactment for the popularization of history and archaeology also had played its role. Also, the rapprochement between East and West of Europe in various fields, including historical sciences, has contributed to a better understanding of the era of interest. The new perspectives and discoveries both in the field and the office have been reflected by exhibitions and new publications.

On three pillars – photos, new publications and the Internet – I constructed Volume III of the Viking and Slavic Ornamental Design which you are now holding. So here it is – a new set of 266 so new, and so ancient, patterns. As always, chosen from among the historical artefacts of various categories. This time, large groups of designs come from the same places. The first of them is Dublin, which we visited in 2014 on the occasion of the festival organized there to celebrate the 1000th anniversary of the Battle of Clontarf and we admired the wonderful creations of Celtic culture and the influence upon it from the Vikings. The collection of beautifully decorated wooden objects is especially characteristic of the Irish capital and the local ornamental style. The second group is constituted by patterns taken from the Norwegian Museum of Cultural History in Oslo. Thematically, and you will find there a large amount of ornamentation in the Borre style. This time, we also drew a lot of material from textiles, ranging from decorations on the famous outfit from the chamber tomb in Mammen, the embroidered and woven patterns from Oseberg and the subsequent embroidery of Russia. Additionally, two very well-known weather vanes provided a certain amount of ornaments.

As always, we present two-dimensional graphics in black and white, enabling the broadest adaptive possibilities and – where possible – almost any selection of colours. Also the logic of the system has not changed, focusing on functionality instead of grouping ornaments in terms of place of origin, the category of monument, the style, dating or borne symbolism.

108 pages.

Sequel of a popular Catalogue.

After four years since the release of “Viking and Slavic Ornamental Design” volume one, the demand for our graphic collection did not decrease, subsequent editions, reprints and an English translation occurred. Historic re-enactors and enthusiasts of the Viking Age in many countries consumed the dish that we have prepared and demand more. Thus we present 258 new, yet old designs.

Selection of patterns was executed following the example of the first edition, but vol. 2. contains two thematic groups. The first one is a collection of redraws of stunning reliefs accumulated on only two objects, mainly the so called Kamień and Bamberg reliquaries, which are justly considered masterpieces. The form of the second group is much simpler, yet symbolically richer, it consists of simple representations of gods and other creatures from the Slavic and northern-Germanic mythology of the Viking Age.
