The Fashion Now & Then: Fashion as Art Conference is around the corner, it will be held at the LIM College Townhouse from Thursday October 20th until Saturday, October 22nd. There are four presenters who have books here at the Adrian G. Marcuse Library available to read or check out.
April Calahan, co-author of Fashion and The Art of Pochoir, will be this year's Friday Keynote speaker on Friday, October 21st from 10:30-11:30am.
This book displays 275 illustrations during the Golden Age in Paris including annotations and biographical descriptions of the artists shown. These illustrations are of “pochoir”, a French hand-stenciling technique issued in luxury fashion publications. This is great piece of French publication history, given the significance of this technique used by artists in the 1910s and 1920s.
