Sam Flax Atlanta, the brick-and-mortar art supply store located at 1460 Northside Drive, has a great selection of books published by Taschen. There are stacks of the mammoth editions, The World of Ornament, and Atlas Major, as well as the inexpensive ($9.99) Icon series, including China Style.
If any of the larger pricey volumes are on your wish list, it's so helpful to peruse the books in person. I'm still thinking about adding Ornament to my library. It comes with a DVD-ROM of high-resolution images of individual ornaments that may be reproduced without copyright restrictions. To reach Sam Flax Atlanta call (404) 352-7200.
