Fore-Edge Painting

Fore-Edge Painting is an illlustration on the edges of a book that is not visible when the book is closed, but only when the pages are fanned. The Boston Public Library has a online collection featuring different forms of fore-edge painting, ranging from the single edge shown above to the extra-neat all-edge painting.
