Bosco: a vintage print from the 1960s
We may fly the flag for maximum color here at LaDoubleJ, but a playful, illustrated landscape print like this one steals our heart in black and white. This graphic pattern is bucolic yet sophisticated: perfect by itself or layered for a print-lover.
This print is sourced from the Mantero archive. It was designed by Paris-based fabric designer Suzanne Kientz in the 1960s. Kientz was famous for making collages to create her prints, often using paper, crayons, gouache, and ink.
