One of the most beautiful Hungarian Art Nouveau books. It contains twenty short stories by Ladislas Medgyes, the Hungarian avant-garde graphic artist and stage designer. His first exhibitions were held in the gallery of the most important Hungarian avant-garde magazine “MA”, which also published his works in print. From the 1920s he lived in Paris, where he founded his school (École Medgyes pour la Technique du Théâtre) of stage design together with the Hungarian architect Erno Goldfinger. He worked as an interior designer all over Europe and in the USA. (quoted from Jeschke Van Vliet)
