A Library’s Best Kept Secret

A Library's Best Kept Secret

(via uispeccoll:)

This is one example of a fore-edge painting from a four volume set of scientific books which are divided by season. Each has a landscape painting of the season hidden until you begin to read it and bend the pages to turn them.

The book featured:

Autumn; or; The causes, appearances, and effects of the seasonal decay and decomposition of nature, 1837. By Robert Mudie.
