Nearly forgotten but glorious art, envisionings and historical oddments from the back corners of the internet
Rhodea Japonica, a species of Japanese lily all living in pots, at least here. From Inoue Gensuke 1883 (Meiji 16) work “Omoto Chasei Chūkei.” Taken from the website of rare book firm Boston Book Company some of whose books I got to visit in person at the antiquarian book fair earlier this month. Copperplates, possibly also with stenciling and wood engraving.
On a voyage to see how much mileage I can get from the creative ability and eye for images that my family thought was useless. On line art curator, fiction writer and now blogger. Historian's daughter. Follow me . . .even I have no idea where I'm going next.
