Paul Rouaix's "Dictionary of Decorative Arts" was a two-volume compendium that acted as a reference to artists and artisans—namely, it included almost 600 engravings and 17 plates. Mucha was commissioned to design the cover, and in his typical fashion, he delivered this decadent Art Nouveau artiste—adrift in thought, and with all the panache one could expect from a Mucha design.
