Art Nouveau is characterized by its love affair with lavish design: sheer sensuality of line and delicate interplay of color are the hallmarks of this popular style which dominated the art scene at the turn of the twentieth century. More than a century later, Art Nouveau still retains its unique appeal, claiming a remarkable resurgence in popularity.
Here is a nearly limitless royalty-free sourcebook of authentic Art Nouveau design inspiration. Three hundred designs and motifs have been carefully selected for their ageless ornamental attractiveness from the Dekorative Vorbilder, an extremely rare early-20th-century stylebook, by noted artist and designer Carol Belanger Grafton. She has chosen 44 full-page plates, featuring virtually every decorative element including borders, panels, scrolls, cartouches, frames, head-and-tailpieces and dingbats. Each is reproduced in full color ― soft blues, muted olives, subtle lavenders, salmon pinks, and pearly grays. An extensive range of motifs are represented ― tangled ivy vines and voluptuous floral sprays of tulips and lilies; Piscean fish, parrots and peacocks; panels of geometric expression and window panes; and sultry women with flowing tresses.
Amid the swirling splendor of Art Nouveau design offered in this handy, affordable volume there is a royalty-free illustration perfect for every design need.
