Mucha produces his first book illustrations for Armand Colin
Mucha produces his first book illustrations for Armand Colin. Mucha is taken on as an illustrator for the Paris-based publisher Armand Colin. Founded in 1870, Armand Colin was one of the first publishers to produce high quality school manuals just as primary education became mandatory in France. Mucha is commissioned by the publisher Lemercier to design a special Christmas and New Year supplement for Le Gaulois magazine, including a feature on Sarah Bernhardt’s portrayal of Gismonda at the Théâtre de la Renaissance.

He is best known for his luxurious poster and product designs, which encapsulate the Art Nouveau style. Contemporary interest in his work was revived in 1980 after an exhibition at the Grand Palais in Paris.
Mucha produced a flurry of paintings, posters, advertisements, and book illustrations, as well as designs for jewelry, carpets, wallpaper, and theatre sets in what was termed initially The Mucha Style but became known as Art Nouveau (French for "new art"). Mucha's works frequently featured beautiful young women in flowing, vaguely robes, often surrounded by lush flowers which sometimes formed halos behind their heads.
