Mucha

Alphonse Mucha is one of my favorite illustrator/artists. His images look like they come straight out of a fantasy world.

"Here is a detail from a photo of an 1898 poster advertising Mucha’s primary printer and lithographer Ferdinand Champenois, of 66 Boulvd. St. Michel, Paris. The beautiful peasant woman in a neoclassical gown, the floral motif (especially in the hair) and the classical design of the gown (in this case Egyptian) are typical Mucha design elements. It may very well the most beautiful ad for a lithographer ever."
