about

Alphonse Mucha (1860-1939) was a Czech graphic designer and decorative artist best known for his distinctive Art Nouveau style. He produced many illustrations, advertisements, postcards, packages and paintings throughout his life. The popularity of Mucha's unique style and demand for his beautiful works has continued to grow since the strong revival of interest in Art Nouveau during the 1960s.

This book is the very best collection of Mucha's characteristic works, covering his entire career, from his beginnings in Paris to his final days in Czech after four years in the United States. His most representative works are featured, not only in the field of fine art but also in editorial design and graphic design. As a special feature, this book introduces more typography and package design works compared to other publications on Mucha's work. And, of course, Mucha's masterpiece the 'Slav Epic' is also covered in detail, along with an interpretation and its historical background.

This beautifully-designed book will be a valuable reference for graphic designers and illustrators alike, and is sure to become a must-have book for Mucha's fans around the world to treasure. Bilingual text, in both Japanese and English.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful Book A gorgeous collection of the artist's illustrations put together thoughtfully and consistently in its design. Very high print quality, if you're interested in Mucha's works/Art Nouveau illustrations I'd recommend checking this out. Would have rated 5 stars if all text written in Japanese were translated for English readers, but only a few parts were but otherwise it's a lovely book.
