This is a most unusual collection of Art Deco designs. All the work of one artist, Parisian Edouard Benedictus, the Dover edition suggests that it is a cross between Art Deco and Art Nouveau. I'm not sure I agree with that. I do have other CD-ROM collections that would fit that category, but this one almost seems in a category by itself. Whatever you want to call them, they are quite beautiful. Though colorful, they lack the brilliancy of many Art Deco works, composed of grayish hues and muted tones.
The format for this set is huge jpgs., so you will probably need to reduce them. I reduced all but one to 20%.
I have provided you, as usual with a tantalizing cross section of the images available in this collection to use in art and craft projects, on your computer, or just to browse and enjoy. You may mouse-over any image to find its location in the book by page number and number on the CD-ROM.
