Description
The French have long been leaders in the creation of textiles and wall coverings, especially during the art deco period of the 1920s. Influenced by art nouveau and modernist styles, designers made bold statements with vivid colors and dazzling patterns.

The images represented in this coloring book were created by a variety of accomplished artists. E. A. Séguy was one of the leading French pattern designers. He created stylized insect, bird, and flower patterns using striking color combinations, some of which were manufactured as textiles or wallpaper.

Séguy and others published design folios using the pochoir technique, a printing process that uses stencils to create clean lines and a wet appearance. Pochoir is labor intensive, and at its peak as many as thirty graphic design studios in France each employed as many as 600 workers. Less-expensive printing techniques, such as color lithography, came to replace pochoir.
