These calling cards all feature the wonderful work of
Alphonse Mucha. Mucha was born in what is now the Czech Republic in 1860 and moved to
Paris in 1890 where he became the premier artist of the poster-art movement under the patronage of
the great Sarah Bernhardt. Mucha designed commercial art, jewelry, interiors,
sculpture, stage design, and calligraphy. Mucha's style is definitively French Art Nouveau and he is one of the most imitated artists and designers of all time.
Victorian custom of leaving a 'calling card' when one paid a visit has been experiencing a
rebirth on the World Wide Web. People are leaving calling cards in guest
books, on bulletin
boards, attached to emails, and so on! You are welcome to choose the ones you like best,
and add your name, web address, or email address to them with an image editing program,
like Paint Shop Pro.
These are all designs
I created from original or public domain clip art. You are free to use
them as calling cards online. These are not for printing, but for
online guest books, forums, bulletin and message boards, and email.
Don't remove my "signature", alter the design other than to
add your personal text, include them in a collection or offer
them as downloads. I hope you enjoy them!

for print use - which is different technically from Web-ready
graphics. I can, however, recommend a company
that makes printed Victorian calling cards:
