Fore Edge Paintings
If anyone is interested in Rare books decorated with a fore-edge painting try the following website:

A fore-edge painting is where the page block of a book is fanned and an image is applied to the stepped surface of the page edges. The art of fore-edge painting came into existance in the mid 17th century, although the actual originator of fore-edge painting is unknown. Today fore-edge painting is practiced by a few select artists.

Re: Fore Edge Paintings
Wow, I did not know it existed.

However, I think I might have come across some of the books without fanning them to see the picture, because I did not know, but wondered about the coloured foreedge.

This is definitely new to me - how clever humans are :D
