The 85 silhouettes in this book are reproduced from a collection of rare German die-cuts manufactured in the 1920s. Though reflecting many elements of the traditional silhouette that developed in the 18th century, they also display many modernistic features - broad swirl and bold forms anticipating Art Deco, the delicacy of the recently introduced Chinese and Japanese stencil designs, the contemporary dress, characteristic gesture and mode. Stencils are printed on one side of the page only.
