As Skippy said, Hidden wonders of libraries!  
I'd never heard of Fore-Edge Paintings. They're amazing.

Thanks to fatfred for the link.

Aren't those the absolute coolest?!

(I used to work in a Book Arts dept. of a college. You learn all sorts of weird things)

I've always loved fore edge paintings! We used to write on our books (usually our names, first name fanned front to back, last name fanned back to front)in imitation of such paintings. I would love to own one... but I have never yet found one I could afford!
