Period Paper has obtained a beautiful collection of original pochoir prints of French costumes and clothing design for women covering the period from 1037 to 1870. This rare collection was printed by zincography, a printing process of engraving or etching on zinc plates, and colored in pochoir, a process of hand painting using stencils, or pochoirs, on each image. This painstaking process captures the smallest detail of each costume, making this an extraordinary artistic as well as historic collection of costume images.
