Fore-Edge Painting, Scenes Painted on the Edges of Book Pages

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, September 03, 2013
Fore-edge painting is 'a way of hiding a painting on the edge of book so that it can only be seen when the pages are fanned out.' Dating back to the 1650s, it is demonstrated in these wonderful GIFs showing the edge of an 1937 book titled Autumn. Some books even have double for-edge paintings, with different ones appearing depending on the directio you flip the pages!
