Is Polite Society Polite essays by Julia Ward Howe, illustrated by Ethel Reed Art Nouveau Vintage Poster
Ethel Reed was one of the first, if not the first, woman to gain prominence as a graphic designer, at the end of the nineteenth century. As a mostly self-taught artist, she gained a reputation as an illustrator in the Art Nouveau style when she was only eighteen.
Her style was distinctive, albeit rooted in the whiplash-curve sensibility of art nouveau. Many of Reed’s illustrations feature female figures, frequently surrounded by objects and tangled forms that seem full of secret and illicit meanings.
