Album with a collection of twenty pochoir pattern plates, titled "Bouquets et Frondaisons" (Flowers and foliage), created by Émile-Allain Séguy and published in Paris by Charles Massin and in New York by Brentano's around 1925. The collection contains a title page, half title, and 20 illustrated plates with semi-abstract motifs inspired on flowers and foliage, likely meant for textile and wallpaper designs. Executed with bold colors, the semi-abstract designs in this album present an interesting combination of the Art Nouveau and Art Deco styles. The illustrations created by Séguy reveal his unique interest in the study of nature as a source of inspiration for artistic creation. The use of pochoir as a printing technique, popular in France at the turn of the 20th century, was ideal for capturing the vivid colors of nature.
