The Roaring Twenties was an inspiring decade of liberation when cigarette-smoking debutantes defiantly paraded Fifth Avenue and trendy speakeasies flourished in flagrant violation of Prohibition. Haute couture and everyday fashion, popular music and entertainment, and Art Deco style and design were all infused with an uninhibited spirit of restless enthusiasm unrivaled in the history of American popular culture.
For this collection of authentic 1920s spot illustrations for the working artist, noted graphic designer Carol Belanger Grafton has selected 1001 witty small cuts that exemplify the spirit of the lively age. Culled from issues of the popular magazine La Vie Parisienne published between 1918 and 1930, illustrations include a host of genuine Jazz Age images ― dashing playboys with sleek roadsters, boyish flappers with bobbed hair, brilliant caricatures of disapproving elders, and many more clever motifs ― capturing the incomparable élan of that "thoroughly modern" era.
