A wonderful collection of 18 pochoir-printed plates from the Paris fashion magazine, La Gazette du Bon Ton, dated from 1920-1922. Published by Les Éditions Lucien Vogel of Paris and The Field Press Ltd. of London. The magazine was published from 1912-1925 (with a hiatus during WWI) and featured exquisitely printed illustrations of the latest fashions using the pochoir printing process, in which stencils were created for the various spot colors and the plates hand-stenciled in vibrant inks - a precursor to silkscreen printing and achieving a similar effect.
Fashion designers and houses included in this collection of prints are Paul Poiret, Eugene Rodier, and Bianchini, among others, with illustrations by Robert Bonfils, Georges Lepape, George Barbier, Fernand Siméon, Bernard Boutet de Monvel, Mario Simon and others. Includes two folded plates measuring 15.25" x 9.75" from the editorial portion of the magazine, and printed on both sides (one with silver metallic printing).
A few individual Gazette du Bon Ton prints are also available on this website (search "pochoir"). Item #1249.
Condition: Very Good overall; age toning to paper, more pronounced along edges.
