STYLISM SYMBOLS
Scurrils and scrollwork
promote a cohegence of
language and matter,

resembled also in
latticework, trellises,
posters, and Art-Nouveau

The existence of style in
structure has in America
been limited almost
exclusively by budget and
taste

Stylisms date in some cases
to Etruscan, Mesopotamian,
or Chinese artifices of earlier
periods

Smaller objects such as
currency and weapons are
often influential due to their
longevity and formulative
imperative
