Fantastic fairies, mesmerizing mermaids, and endless bouquets of elegant linework! Over seventy images from the Century Guild archive are now collected in a beautiful keepsake book featuring full-page, full-color images and historical commentary. Flowering Lines is a collection of rare Art Nouveau graphics from famous artists like Alphonse Mucha to rarely-seen Masters of Design from Austria, Italy, Germany, and the United States, at the close of the 19th century. Many of these images are unseen anywhere on the internet- this is a must-have for fans of Art Nouveau!
While the internet is a magnificent repository of data, at Century Guild we still love curling up with books! And many–if not most–of the images presented here are not available on the internet at all. Each image was captured from the original artwork, professionally photographed and meticulously color corrected, and printed for you to enjoy at the highest resolution possible.
