Update: This morning we take a look back through some more of Agostino's work including his wonderful sketchbooks and drawings!

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!
