Why we love this

London-born architect and designer Owen Jones was one of the most influential design theorists of his time. He traveled to Egypt to study the Islamic architecture in Cairo, and continued on to Constantinople before arriving in Granada in southern Spain in 1834. There, he carried out his visual record of the Alhambra palace and its extraordinary Islamic decoration. The standards of color printing at that time were not sophisticated enough to do justice to the intricate studies, so he printed the work himself in collaboration with the lithographers Day Haghe using the new process of chromolithography. These are fine-art reproductions of these original antique prints.
