"The essential "Mauzan" Catalogue Raisonne". Greg Yaneff

Achille Mauzan was a master of the clever, zany, and intriguingly positioned image. Greatly influenced by Leonetto Cappiello, his art reflects a dazzling twist on the Art Deco style. Featuring over 500 of his works, The Posters of Mauzan is a tribute to his life and body of work.

The book begins with an insightful biography of the great artist, written by one of the people who knew him best, his daughter, Mirande Carnévalé-Mauzan. She provides intimate details of her father's work, life, and family that help explain and enliven his posters. This is followed by hundreds of full-color illustrations, beginning with the artist's work publicizing silent films. Lastly, the reader is treated to both the original artwork on which Mauzan's posters were based and additional artwork that was left unpublished. Text is in English; annotations are in French.

Mirande Carnévalé-Mauzan the Author, is the only daughter of poster designer Achille Mauzan. She dedicated herself to collecting and studying his art. The vast collection of Mauzan posters found here was assembled by Ms. Carnévalé-Mauzan and her husband, Marino Carnévalé.
