Notes:

This full-page border design is taken from ancient persian ceramic building tiles. The original tiles go from the centre of one rosette to the next, and are 10 inches (25cm) from joint to joint. There is also a corner tile, of course.

The border is made up of stylized 8-petaled rosettes with dots on alternate leaves, connected by vine-like stems and leaves.

This version may be a little dark on the screen; I also made a brighter version that works better on the screen.
