Hautes couvertures

Apparently Paris was a hotbed of elegant bookbinding, back in the 1920s:

Creuzevault - Assise

Paul Bonet - Jeanne D’Arc

Jeanne Langrand - Ouvert la Nuit

Pierre Legrain - Le Diademe de Flore

Pierre Legrain - Quelques fables de la Fontaine

All from Grabink, via Sarah Koz on Quipsologies.

    Words very nearly fail me–the are works of art. We really don’t see work like that much nowadays. I have truly had my socks knocked off. Thanks for the look-see.
