Some iPhone snaps I've taken recently on my travels. The architectural photos are from Darlinghurst. I took these photos as I was interested in the different ages/ styles of building design ranging from early Victorian to art deco and beyond. The flowers and pelican are from Centennial Park.
These are two illustrations from Art Deco master illustrator/ artist George Barbier's book Designs on the Dances of Vaslav Nijinsky.Nijinsky being the very famous ballet dancer of the time. The book contained illustrations of Nijinsky in ballets he was well know for. The top image is the cover of the book and the image below is an illustration for Nijinsky's ballet Carnaval.
I thought this Art Deco movie poster for the silent 1926 film So this is Paris was pretty fun. Not only is it a comedy, but it also features lots of Charleston dancing. If you'd like to know more about So this is Paris, you can read a very enthusiastic 1926 New York Times review of it here!
Two cover illustrations from the luxury French periodical Femina by Georges Barbier. I'm always astounded when I come across yet more of his beautiful illustrations - he was without a shadow of a doubt prolific!
