Paris: Armand Guérinet, 1928. First edition. Loose leaf. Folio (16 x 12 1/4"). (1) 12 plates. Original portfolio bound in rose quarter cloth over decorative gilt-laced paper-covered boards with decorative tan label with black lettering.

A collection of fifty-two fabric designs of "a completely new kind" presented in pochoir on twelve plates. The intricate floral and abstract designs, rendered in stunning pochoir patterns, are extraordinary designs. The plates feature floral, geometric and animal motifs, typical of the eclectic Art Deco style, with traditional European design as well as designs of ancient cultures mixed in. Some patterns rendered in lithography with partial pochoir overprint. With the publisher's recommendation expressing that "the work of Nicolas Sorokine speaks for itself through its color and its design."

Nicolas Sorokine is of Russian origin, born in Kazan in 1892 and died in Lyon. He was part of the Russian avant-garde and was known for his work on fabrics in the wake of collectivist painters such as Rozanova, Bourliouk working for the Decorative Arts in the 1920s. Exquisite collection.
