Alexandre de Riquer book covers

riquer.jpg

A pair of cover designs by the very prolific Alexandre de Riquer (1856–1920), an illustrator and designer who might be described as the Catalan equivalent of Alphonse Mucha. It’s often the case with the artists of this period that you find one or two examples of their work in books but see little else. Riquer has better representation on the web than most. These are from a post at Bajo el Signo de Libra which features other cover designs while this site has many pages devoted to the artist’s paintings, bookplates, poster designs, decorative work and even his books of poetry.
