Stunning repeat patterns and pictorial panels from the source books of Art Nouveau master M.P. Verneiul. Original and faithfully reproduced patterns in their original colours, from a Parisian collection first published in 1897. These copyright-free designs, ideal for wallpaper and other interior finishes, include not only traditional, appealing shapes of graceful swans, peacocks and dolphins, but also finely detailed depictions of creatures rarely associated with beauty and ornamentation: bats, mice, lizards, insects and other less-glamorous forms of animal life. The collection features birds in skyscapes, fish, dragonflies, sinuous aquatic plants, rams heads, squirrels, flying fish and many more original designs, worked into repeating patterns or in picture friezes.
Invaluable, inspirational sourcebook of copyright-free illustrations for artists, craftspeople and students of design.Illustrations:
