Balance of Shape





This poster, advertising gas mantels, uses a symmetrical arrangement which was  a popular device during the Art Nouveau period at the turn of the 20th century. The formal, balanced symmetry gives a feeling of permanence, beauty and reliability – just what a gas mantle should deliver.
