Cahiers d'Art was published in Paris from 1926-1960 by Greek art collector, writer and art critic Christian Zervos. From a print collector's viewpoint, this art revue is most famous for the pochoirs which were commissioned for some of the issues. Zervos had high technical standards, and these works are stunning.
