Dover Books - a great resource

There are many beautiful high-quality books on Art Nouveau, some of which will be reviewed here later. But let me recommend a wonderful low-cost possibility. I know when I was a struggling art student, these source-books were my main introduction (along with the excellent libraries at a couple art schools). A great source of multiple Art Nouveau images for study and use are available from the books produced by Dover Publications. There are many. Here are some favorites:

From: Treasury of Art Nouveau Design & Ornament by Carol Belanger Grafton - Purchase it here

From: Art Nouveau: An Anthology of Design and Illustration from "The Studio" by Edmund V. Gillon Jr. - Purchase it here

From: Grasset's Art Nouveau Flower and Plant Designs  by Eugene Grasset - Purchase  it here
