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Mauzan's posters were based and additional artwork that was left unpublished.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.
