Details

Designers, collectors, and Art Nouveau aficionados will be delighted by this original collection of 100 plates of decorative full-color graphics. These authentic images are reproduced from the now extremely hard-to-find periodical La Decoration Artistique, published in Paris in the decade before World War I. They constitute some of the rarest and best material printed during the Art Nouveau period. Uncommonly graceful and appealing masterworks in a new beautifully designed hardcover edition.

The dazzling array of images includes headpieces, typographical banners, and other sinuous designs bursting with classic Art Nouveau style flowers, vines and plants, parrots and peacocks, and other natural motifs. Examples include storefront signage for bakeries and cafés; decorative friezes of theatrical masks and grapevines; borders of flowers, books, and birds; stenciled decorations for fire screens; and even corner and ceiling ornaments.

This is the kind of illustration that served to inspire designers in creating artwork for tiles, posters, letterhead and page borders, even hand-painted decorations for furniture and walls in period homes.

An essential acquisition for any library or collector of Art Nouveau graphics and illustration, this volume promises to provide a lasting source of inspiration and pleasure. Very handsome, large-sized hardcover bound in full cloth, with gold-embossed titles and a full color dust jacket.
