A French textile design source book from Lyon, in the early 1900's this is a full colour collection of rich floral, leaf, abstract and nature patterns from the early 1900's. The hand painted images are generally on single colour backgrounds and are colourful repeat patterns. There is a hint of Art Deco but also a strong prefiguring of the colours and design ethic of modernism.
Beautiful strong backgrounds ideal for fabrics, textiles or wallpaper repeat designs.
Illustrations: 107 pages - generally a single image to a page.
