A pioneer in Art Nouveau design, Eug ne Grasset was a Swiss decorative artist who worked in Paris during the Belle Epoque. These 72 color plates of lush floral images are lovingly reproduced from a rare edition of his classic La plante et ses applications ornementales. Full-page images, borders, and insets include illustrations -- both realistic and fanciful -- by M. P. Verneuil and other Art Nouveau masters, including G. Bourgeot, Marcelle Gaudin, E. Hervegh, Anna Martin, J. Milesi, A. Poidevin, and C. G. Schlumberger. With their fine details and subtle shadings, these royalty-free images will add notes of perfect elegance to any graphics project. Amateur and professional designers and crafters will find this volume a splendid resource of both inspiration and utility.
