Art prints & posters

Working directly with A. M. Cassandre's (1901–1968) estate, we're delighted to produce an exclusive collection of embossed prints by the eponymous French-Ukrainian graphic designer. A modern master of composition, geometric form, and eye-catching typefaces intended to be seen by fast-moving vehicles, A. M. Cassandre's commercial commissions borrowed from Cubism, Purism, and Futurism. Exquisitely executed, much of the Art Deco collection celebrates 1920s and 1930s luxury travel, lavish lifestyles, and gastronomic delights.

The Artist

A.M. Cassandre

Commercial poster artist and typeface designer, Adolphe Jean-Marie Mouron (1901–1968) was born in Kharkov, Ukraine. After attending the Ecole des Beaux-Arts, he enrolled in Lucien Simon’s independent studio and later at the Académie Julian. ln 1922, he moved to Paris where he decided to sign his advertising designs with ‘Cassandre’. Thence known under the self-appointed pseudonym, his early work – characterised by his signature synthetic style – brought him instant fame. 

Best-known for his iconic 1932 Dubonnet wine posters, his designs made impact through their emphasis on innovative typefaces, many of which he patented, including Bifur (1929), Acier (1930), Acier noir (1936), and Cassandre (1968). Bridging the gap between fine art and commercial art, he went on to become one of the most influential graphic designers in history.
