    The painter Gerbrand van den Eeckhout designed several print series showing cartouches and decorative art objects in the Auricular Style. This particular series of cartouches was aimed at an international audience and three different title pages were made to accompany the prints. This is the Dutch title page, which is the most elaborate of the three. The title cartouche is held up by two male figures and below the cartouche several attributes lie strewn over the floor that might refer to the disciplines for which the designs were most useful: architecture and sculpture.
