235 DECORATIVE DESIGNS OF THE TWENTIES in Color Henri Gillet
Henri Gillet's striking, elegant designs have inspired artists since the 1920s. A gifted ornamentalist, Gillet brought a fresh approach to interpretations of plant life, creating exciting geometric motifs in pure, vibrant colors-timeless designs with contemporary flair.
235 Decorative Designs of the Twenties is a facsimile of Gillet's rare portfolio from 1922–Vignettes Décoratives dans le goût du jour-worth hundreds of dollars today. Reproduced here are 235 startlingly beautiful designs in full color-all copyright-free and highly adaptable to a wide spectrum of modern graphic needs.

Exquisitely detailed and clearly printed, the illustrations are superbly suited to reproduction and immediately usable. Artists, designers and craft enthusiasts will find Gillet's decorative vignettes ideal for use in printed textiles, friezes, wallpapers, decoupage, wall hangings, stenciling... a host of arts-and-crafts projects.
