This highly decorative collection of silhouette designs provides commercial artists and craftspeople with an abundance of elegant and fanciful motifs. Artist Rico Prosperoso has created richly detailed portraits of lovely ladies wearing elaborate headdresses, graceful images of wood sprites, ships in full sail, beautiful floral vignettes, a powerful interpretation of a Chinese dragon, and much more.
Choose from 153 bold and eye-catching designs in varied sizes, covering many subjects. Cleanly printed on high-quality paper for easy and instant reproductions, the illustrations are ideal for embellishing stationery and menus, for decoupage projects, and wherever there's a need for distinctive, beautiful, royalty-free art.
