Exercise Advice For 1920s French Flappers

La Culture Physique de la Femme Elegante, published in France in the 1920s offers illustrations of exercises that a woman could do at home in order to stay fit.

Pochoir printing, the method used to create the plates for La Culture Physique, was a favorite technique of French artists illustrating publications in fashion, interior design, and architecture between 1900 and the 1930s.
