I'm looking for some of those great art deco and advertising images from the 1920s but, try as I might, I cannot find any simple line drawings suitable for silk screening. About 2 years ago, I found a book at my library with them, but when I went, back they didn't have it anymore! If anyone can point me in the right direction, I'd really appreciate it. Thanks!

you can also get samplers every week for free if you subscribe. I haven't gotten any spam from this, either. just an impressive collection of clipart as I get around to opening and saving it.

do a google image search on "Art Nouveau" it was the predominant artistic style of the time. Erte was a very famous artist of the time.
