Format: Paperback
A truly beautiful book, many of the plates are full page and in full color. His nudes and semi-nudes are entirely captivating with exquisite attention to detail. The remainder of the plates are tints and depict various items in art nouveau style (jewelry, silverware, china, etc.). There are also a few pages containing color borders and backgrounds. The copyright in this book is unusual for Dover Publications, as it grants no explicit free-use of the images contained within it.

High skill drawings from the Belle Epoch era of France. You can definately see how Alphonse Mucha's work influenced contemporary illustration work of today. Great tight collection of examples from his body of work.

I had been led to believe that this book included most of Mucha's better artwork "in the original colours." It is mostly his monochrome sketches and less-known, not very interesting works. A big disappointment.

HASH(0x9aa617d4) out of 5 stars If you Love Mucha you will love this. May 16 2006
By Sarah OSullivan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is a reproduction of Mucha's portfolio "Documents Decoratifs" which is a lovely selection of Mucha's work. It includes not only many nude women and flowers (which one would expect) but also designs for furniture, silverware and lots of jewellery. If your looking for a source of information on Mucha this is not it but if you just want to gaze lovingly at a wide selection of his work you will adore this book.

HASH(0x9aa61f84) out of 5 stars Fantastic Art Nouveau reference March 29 2010
By Noumenon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book exceeded my expectations; I've fallen in love lately with these Dover books of artists' works. The full-page reproductions are top-notch and the selection creates a broad overview of the Art Nouveau/Jugendstil movement by its most famous and arguably most characteristic artist. You have Mucha himself to thank for that, as this is simply a recollation of images from his own book, though the plates are in a different order (for the purists, a chart is included referencing the pages to Mucha's original order).

It's not as thorough or lavish as the definitive book Alphonse Mucha by Sarah Mucha, but then it's also less than half the price and much more portable. There's little enough overlap between the two that it's worth buying both, and in my opinion most of the reproductions (other than the posters) are better in this Dover book. If you're looking for a broad overview and reference of the Art Nouveau style, this Dover book is the one to get, whereas if you want a more focused look at Mucha's work and life, particularly his ornamental panels featuring Sarah Bernhardt and other women, you'll want to pick up Sarah Mucha's book (or perhaps the other Dover book, Drawings of Mucha: 70 Works by Alphonse Maria Mucha Including 9 in Full Color.)

HASH(0x9ac0d15c) out of 5 stars Dont know what "full color" means anymore June 19 2013
By diegorel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Bought this book thinking I was going to find colorful pictures and designs. First of all it's only 70 pages. Then when I opened it I found out almost 80% of the pictures, even when they were full page, were in black and white. An overall observation is the lack of quality on the drawings and pics, they seem like washed out and lacking contrast. The book is OK for the price, especially if you are designing jewelry or clothing, I think there are better options, I would suggest Treasury of Art Nouveau Design & Ornament (Dover Pictorial Archive)

HASH(0x9ac0d048) out of 5 stars All Killer, No Filler July 6 2011
By Mayor Bloomburger - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this book to rip out patterns and prints for inexpensive wall decorations. This book is HUGE and packed with full-page, beautiful prints. The artwork in this book is perfect for making craft and party decorations, to hang up in schools, offices and kitchens, or to scan into Photoshop for patterns, brushes, ANYTHING - the patterns and design are so intense and beautiful, there's no way not to get inspired. The quality and quantity of the work in this book is amazing, I might end up buying it twice. Keep in mind there are lots of nudes.
