Louis Sullivan Designs Embossed Notecards - Set of 12
Louis Sullivan’s designs stand—among stiff competition—as the preeminent exemplars of Chicago School architecture. He brought to his practice a conviction that ornamentation should arise naturally from a building's overall design, restating, in a large or small way, themes expressed in the structure as a whole. The designs adapted for this notecard assortment combine Art Nouveau complexity with geometric elegance, and in doing so epitomize the Sullivan sensibility.
The shapes of the illustrations are embossed on high-quality recycled paper. Contains three each of the following notecards:
- Adaptation from ornamental medallion on Schlesinger & Mayer (now Carson Pirie Scott) department store
- 1899/1904 Adaptation from ornamental detail on Auditorium Building
