Our Shape Shift series reproduces an original work by heralded Art Deco designer Pierre Legrain.

It highlights key elements of his artistic style, with the triangles, trapezoids and zigzagging lines all bringing a lively sense of movement. We have further carried this geometric style to the printed pattern on the page edges of these softcover Flexi notebooks.

With his imaginative sense of free experimentation, Legrain brought bookbinding firmly into the 20th century, and into the hands of art collectors and architecture enthusiasts beyond the usual bibliophiles.

This modern mosaic design is now proudly a part of the Spencer Collection at The New York Public Library.

As part of our Spring 2022 collection, Shape Shift Moutarde is also available as a bookmark.
