Elegant and distinctive, these eye-catching motifs combine a refined naturalism with the sophistication of Art Nouveau. Created during the early years of Art Nouveau, they reflect the late nineteenth century interest in Japanese art, as well as the fresh excitement of a blossoming movement that's remained fashionable for well over a century. Sixty-six full-color images feature luxurious patterns and ornaments designed for ceramics, furniture, textiles, walls, and ceilings. Superbly reproduced from a rare folio, these decorations were formerly available only in high-priced antiquarian editions. This inexpensive compilation makes them readily accessible and royalty-free to graphic artists, crafters, and designers.
