Louis Sullivan Designs Embossed Boxed Cards

Louis Sullivan’s designs stand—among stiff competition—as the preeminent exemplars of Chicago School architecture. He brought to his practice a conviction that ornamentation should arise naturally from a building’s overall design, restating, in a large or small way, themes expressed in the structure as a whole.

The designs adapted for this notecard assortment combine Art Nouveau complexity with geometric elegance, and in doing so epitomize the Sullivan sensibility.

Please note: the images are not printed with ink. The shapes of the illustrations are embossed on high-quality recycled paper.

Contains three each of the following notecards:
Adaptation from ornamental medallion on Schlesinger & Mayer (now Carson Pirie Scott) department store, 1899/1904
Adaptation from ornamental detail on Auditorium Building, 1887–1889
