Part of a new series of beautiful gift art books, 100 Art Nouveau Posters is as vivacious and optimistic as the period from which it derives its power to appeal, the Fin de Siecle. Combining advertising and art, by artists such as Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Alphonse Mucha and Jules Cheret, these beautiful posters offer an intriguing view of a society revelling in its new-found sophistication. With a fresh and thoughtful introduction to the movement and its posters, the book goes on to showcase the key works in all their glory.
