Overview


An ideal sourcebook for artists and designers, this collection comprises a cornucopia of appealing royalty-free designs, illustrations, and embellishments, brought together from a rare catalog published by a noted French typography foundry at the turn of the last century. More than 100 of the best plates from that catalog—containing over 3,200 clear, detailed illustrations and covering an enormous range of subjects—have been painstakingly reproduced in this volume.
Among the eye-catching spot illustrations and motifs included here are fruits, flowers, plants, and trees; animals; playing cards; angels, saints, and religious motifs; musical instruments; carriages and sailing vessels; sporting events; household furnishings and equipment; hats, shoes, parasols, and other clothing items; military figures in full garb; and much more. Here also are ornamental borders, elaborate mortised cuts, banners, wreaths, and a host of other line art ideal for framing, embellishing, or calling attention to printed matter.
This comprehensive selection of charming cuts from a bygone era will provide artists and illustrators with a nearly inexhaustible supply of royalty-free graphics awash in period ambience—perfect for use in catalogs, brochures, newsletters, and a host of other artistic and print projects.
