Paul Iribe was an illustrator who began his career as a cartoonist and humorist, but became best known for his influence on fashion and for his Art Deco costume, furniture, and fabric designs. This album was one of three in a series illustrated by Iribe for Nicolas, with the others titled "Blanc et Rouge" and "Bleu Blanc Rouge". They were created shortly after Iribe returned to Paris after working in Hollywood from 1914 to 1929. Cecil B. DeMille was quoted as saying that Iribe was the best Art Director he ever worked with.
