The Splendors of Books

Georges Barbier (French, 1882-1932)

J’adore, what more can I say! Fell in absolute love this afternoon when I discovered this book called Poiret written by Harold Koda and Andrew Bolton.

These lovely illustrations were part of French fashion designer Paul Poiret’s (1879-1944) work whose contribution to twentieth-century fashion has been likened to Picasso’s contributions to art. What amazing lifestyles these images depict, count me in! Feathers, tiaras, and pearls never go out of style!

Georges Lepape (French, 1887-1971)
