Erte Fashions Coloring Book
Among Dover's best-selling books on costume design are those featuring fashions by Erté. A major influence on style and design of the twentieth century, this Russian-born designer created 250 covers and other drawings while at Harper's Bazaar. Thirty of his loveliest Art Deco costumes, drawn for the magazine during the years 1915 to 1922, have been superbly adapted by Marty Noble for this dazzling collection. Colorists will enjoy adding their own hues to lovely figures in exotic garments accented with turbans and shawls, an elegant peasant-like tunic and trousers, a dancer's attire made up of flowing ribbons, and other fanciful designs
