Compiled by a master craftsman and teacher at the world-famous École Boulle in Paris, this first-rate, all-encompassing collection of decorative Art Deco wood designs includes an array of motifs — trim and elegant in their simplicity. Included are boldly styled geometrics within frames and borders, dynamic designs combining circles, squares, and abstract figures, as well as starkly elemental versions of blossoms, masks, creatures of the animal kingdom, and other wood carvings. Open spaces within some of the patterns allow the incorporation of ad copy or other messages, while the varied textures and superb finish of the plates will add graphic excitement and period flavor to fabric design, stationery, and other art and craft projects.
