Moreover, the library hold various design sheets, such as the series of 'Design sheets for craftsmen and vocational schools', published between 1895 and 1905 by the Association of Applied Arts, which is a unique document representing the effort for creating a Hungarian national decorative art. The folio size booklets with partly colourful printed sheets reproduced several Art Nouveau furniture, ceramics and textiles as well as decoration designs serving as standards for the applied artists of the period.
