ORIENTALISM & ART NOUVEAU (RE-CREATION)
I found a very small book cover made of brass at an antique store. By the looks of the front and back (see bottom image), there are elements of Orientalism (how Western Civilization depicted Asian culture) on the front and a very Art Nouveau pattern on the back. Therefore it is believed to be from the early 1900's. I loved these designs so much that I recreated them in Illustrator and layered them. When the pandemic is over and business is somewhat normal, I would like to get letterpress printing plates created of these two designs.
