Mucha La Pater from the INHA collection of art books

i guess anyone that loves art has some fabled books they would LOVE to get their hands on. and for me a big one of them is "La Pater" by Mucha! the book really is not old, i think it's published in 2001 and reprinted in 2005, but it has eluded my clawing hands at Art Center Library(Damnable thief with great taste!) and in Paris(added to my cart and paid and was told a week later it's no longer in stock). But the lame and determined always prevails, no? :) Found it in one of the, or maybe THE best art book library in the world!!






I suggest any nerd like me to put this on their itinerary~ Not only the interior jaw dropping, the books they hold inside... are only limited by your knowledge of painters~

I saw these pieces at the Vienna retrospective a few weeks back. Stunning work. Congratulations on finding a copy.
