From the Archive: Motifs of the Twenties

One of the most exciting aspects of working on DoverPictura is that it has allowed us to dig even deeper into our archive, reintroducing collections that have gone out of print or never quite made it to the bookshelf. Such is the case with this unique and vibrant collection, Motifs of the Twenties.

Motifs of the Twenties features more than 300 color and black-and-white images that sparkle with youthful energy and Jazz Age verve. And it's no wonder- these designs were originally created in 1923 by female students at New York City's Washington Irving High School! 

Flowers, animals, and abstract patterns serve as individual illustrations as well as distinctive borders and accents. Think of all the fun you can have with these- greeting cards, home decor, you name it!

Is there a long gone Dover Publications book that you'd like to see on DoverPictura? Let us know in the comments!
