Lepape, Georges

Paris. Libraire J. Meynial. 1921
Georges Lepape's beautiful fashion plates.

From the edition limited to 300 numbered copies.

Modes et Manières d'Aujourd'Hui was a leading fashion periodical of the Art Deco period and the pochoir plates illustrate the height of French fashion at the time. Each volume contained fashion plates by a different artist, here by Georges Lepape and was supplemented by text and poems by a featured writer. Published between 1912 - 1923, there was a total of seven volumes and each one was limited to only 300 copies. Because of the popularity of the individual pochoir prints complete volumes in the original folders are rare.
