A perfect piece of Art Deco fashion heaven...
Gladys Emma Peto was an English fashion designer, writer & artist. Her illustrations appeared in The Sketch and later, she created her own children's books. The Art Deco style was evident in her work and makes them very collectible today. This large-format folio Art Deco story book for girls is superbly illustrated and is in great condition, bringing the bright, stylish young women and flappers of the era back to dazzling life.
It features a cloth blue binding, black title lettering, wonderful illustrated front cover and art deco design to the spine, as well as eight wonderfully distinctive full-page colour plates and monochrome illustrations to every page.
Catnip for anyone interested in Art Deco, particularly the fashions of the era.
