J.C. Leyendecker

I just want to share a bit of my newfound fondness for art déco stuff. Leyendecker is really famous, but he's not so well-known here and I don't know him for that long.

I really like his simplification of form and shapes and the boldness of his designs. Interestingly it reminds me of a lot of the digital illustration from today.
I you are further interested, I found a nice summary of his career here .

This socks advertisement amuses me greatly.

He really liked these blocked in white backgrounds.
