French Prints

There are about 200,000 of these swatch cards at Philadelphia University's Design Center. This is the sort of online archive I can tear myself away from only when my body starts to protest about being chained to the monitor for such a ridiculous number of hours. And it was equally hard to choose a small-enough group of samples to show here. But I finally settled on these French prints, created at the very end of the 19th century and the very beginning of the 20th.
