Alfons Mucha - Salammbô

Alfons Mucha - Salammbô (1896)

Salammbô (1862) is a historical novel by Gustave Flaubert. It is set in Carthage during the 3rd century BC. The book is largely an exercise in sensuous and violent exoticism. Following the success of Madame Bovary, it was another best-seller and sealed his reputation.

  1. Absolutely love the artwork of Alphonse Mucha. Madame Bovary is still on my 'to read' list, maybe this winter . . .
