Article has been replaced with another with a complete list of motifs, not just the racial ones: ESO Motifs
There are many exotic crafting styles that represent the culture and prowess of the various races of Tamriel. Each style provides a distinct appearance to an item and within a style there are several appearance substyles for various levels.
There are currently 20 crafting styles. A crafter will automatically know their racial style and can learn others by using motif books / scrolls found around Tamriel. The styles are: Altmer, Argonian, Bosmer, Breton, Dunmer, Khajit, Nord, Orc, Redguard, Dwemer, , Ancient Elf, Barbaric, Daedric, Imperial, and Primative. The motif books are found in standard containers (backpacks, cabinets, chests, dressers, nightstands, trunks, urns, and vases). The standard motifs (blue – character races) are found in non-veteran rank areas and the rarer ones in veteran regions. Some of the rarer ones can be found in areas where the main questline, guild questlines (mages’ guild, fighters’ guild), and added content (Imperial City, Orsium, etc.) take place.
This tome is a follow up to my popular tome ESO Crafting Sets. This compendium provides novice crafters the locations of the crafting retreats in the Aldmeri Dominion, Daggerfall Covenant, Ebonheart Pact, Coldharbour, and Craglorn.
Often crafters follow in their parents footsteps and take over the family business. As a result some rarely live their hometown and the familiarity of the crafting stations.

Often the journal system doesn’t properly identify the turn in location if it is not at the crafters location. This brief tome describes the popular writ destinations of Tamriel. At the moment, it seems that consumables offer the best rewards consistently at all levels. Equipment writs seem to consume nearly a stack of resources and at lower levels, the rewards can mock the crafter with low value items like a quartz stone.
