LA GAZETTEDU BON TON

GAZETTE DU BON TON,PUBLISHED BY LUCIEN VOGEL, 1912-1928.
DESIGNED AS A JOURNAL TO APPEAL TO THE ELTE OF PARIS, FULL OF HIGH FASHION PLATES AND CHATTY ARTICLES ON ALL ASPECTS OF LIFE FOR THE PRIVILED, IT TRANSCENDS ITS MUNDANE GOALS THROUGH THE INCREDIBLE QUALITY OF THE PUBLICATION FROM THE HIGH QUALITY PAPER TO THE BREATH TAKING BEAUTY OF THE PRINTS AND THE HIGH QUALITY OF THE ART THROUGHOUT.
THE EXTRAVAGANTLY VIVID COLORS OF THE PRINTS WERE CREATED BY THE POCHOIR PROCESS, WHEREIN SINGLE LAYERS OF COLOR WERE ADDED BY HAND TO A LITHOGRAPH USING A STENCIO, IN A PRECURSOR OF THE SILK SCREENING TECHNIQUE WHICH IS NOW WIDELY USED FOR ART PRINTS.

thank you for posting this. I love it. I've researched and written quite a lot on barbier and lepape for my graduate thesis.

DON'T SPAM MY BLOG AGAIN! YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!

You know that just leaving a link to your blog as a comment isn't very sociable? I'm not reporting it as spam because this is not offensive - in fact I kind of like art deco stuff - but I'm not posting it either, because it's just completely irrelevant to the post where you left it.
