The "Gazette du bon ton" was published from November 1912 to summer 1915 and from January 1920 through December 1925. The complete run consisted of twelve volumes. The "Gazette" featured elegant fashions of pre- and postwar France by leading designers, utilizing the technique that revolutionized fashion illustration—pochoir, or stenciling by hand with watercolor. Contributing artists included Georges Lepape, Pierre Grissaud, H. R. Dammy, Georges Barbier, Strimpl, Maggie, and Guy Arnoux.
