I like poster designs.

I don't understand why you are putting prices in your blog--are you trying to sell the cards?

The Divine Sarah. One of my favorite Mucha works.

I am always ready to be bowled over by Art Nouveau and this is no exception. Gorgeous!

Beautiful design. And I love the costumes Sarah Bernhardt wore. I am an admirer. I visited an exhibition about her in Amsterdam and saw all the film fragments left of her movies. A friend of mine even wrote a great book about Sarah.

Alphonse Mucha made this poster for the stage version of La Dame aux Camelias. There is also a silent film version with Sarah Bernhardt, for which another designer made great posters, also in the art nouveau style.

For PFF I did once a post on her films. If you're interested, check it out here:
