This is an interesting book for artists in the sense of creating patterns and fence and screen fills. 64 pages, 179 figures of patterns and the information on how to create them along with some history of the from the Roman mosaic tile days. There are 32 full page patterns, that can be used for ideas or a start on designing your own fills for gate,screen or fence panel fills, or even my original idea when I saw one of those OP-Art posters. Wall hanging panels of assorted sizes in a grouping.

Not to mention the possibilities, with the use of a CNC cutter. Leave some solid metal in patterns and cut out the rest. Combining the lattice work design with some solid bits of metal or glass and you have an interesting garden piece or smaller or larger trellis.

If you like the style of the plates there is a page that explains the construction of creating them.
