Nearly forgotten but glorious art, envisionings and historical oddments from the back corners of the internet
Selections from a collection of designs for bookbindings. Art Nouveau, more or less. Three completed in pencil and watercolor, and the others incorporating pencil, ink, watercolor, gouache, and gilt accents. Designed in Paris between 1910 and 1914 by Charles Meunier with at least two having been used for books by Léon and Paul Gruel. Taken from the website of Bromer Booksellers, Boston whose stall I visited and whose staff I visited with at the antiquarian book fair in Boston last November. They had some wonderful things!
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.
