LE SOURIRE Art Deco Era Risque Satire ~ Paris '20s/30s

Sourire, one of the great French magazines of the art deco era, was a beautifully illustrated, risque humor and satirical review. A spin-off from the publishers of La Vie Parisienne magazine and utilizing many of the same artists including Cheri Herouard, Gerda Wegener, Maurice Milliere, Klem, Bonnote, Sacha Zaliouk, Rene Vincent and Leo Fontan. Another example of the abilities of Parisian publishers/editors of the era to pull together the best talent, to create an appealing, enduring publication.
