how can I say this without sounding old...

...the other night I was watching Antiques Roadshow.

 

...at 2am.

 

...sprawled out on my bed.

 

WAIT!!! DON'T LEAVE!!!!

I swear this isn't a regular occurrence. At least, not regular enough for me to admit to on the internet. SO. I was watching Antiques Roadshow (gah!), and some really gorgeous Art Deco posters came up on the show. I absolutely loved the style and colors, they're those often-imitated posters that just aren't as good as the real thing!

These two Monte Carlo posters are so colorful and fun (click for larger)! I love the type in them, of course, and the style of illustration is just so appealing and wonderful. I would love to have one of these images for my wall if I ever got my act together and redecorated my room.

OH NO. As I am typing this, another episode is starting! Make it stop!!

Anyway, I looked up the artist that created those posters - his name is Louis Icart. Here are some more of his works:

These two, above and below, are such a different feel than the first two posters, but carry the same illustration feel. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the shape of the woman's body on the left! It's so wispy but curvy, and I love that the feet trail off into a point (almost like smoke).
