The Bookplates of Aubrey Beardsley

cover The Bookplates of Aubrey Beardsley

Mark Samuels Lasner

Highly decorative in contrasting black and white, small in scale, and executed with an eye towards reproduction, the celebrated drawings of Aubrey Beardsley (1872-98) are ideally suited for use as bookplates. This informative book describes and illustrates for the first time forty plates made from his works. These include the three bookplates the artist actually designed for the purpose - for the physician and scholar John Lumsden Propert, for his patron Herbert Charles Pollitt, and for the poet Olive Custance, who married Oscar Wilde's lover, Lord Alfred Douglas.
Softbound: 15.6 x 23.4 cm,
108 pp., illustrated.
