Art Links For 06/11/2007

Publishers' Bindings Galleries
This is an interesting collection of book binding covers from 1815 to 1930 organized in categories, e.g., Japonisme, Louisa May Alcott and Art Nouveau.  You're not supposed to judge a book by it's cover, but if I saw either of the two books below, I'd buy them just for the cover art!

Daughters of Nijo (1904)
by Onoto Wantanna

Lulu's Library (1886)
by Louisa May Alcott

Things to Come
This site has a remarkable collection of memorabilia from the 1936 movie Things to Come, which was written by H. G. Wells.   I like the Photo and Public Materials Galleries best.  Lot's large scans.

Eugenio Recuenco (Neurastenia)
This photographer is very talented indeed.  His Shanghai Tang calendar shots really capture the style of those beautiful old Art Deco posters from Shanghai.

Marie-Guillemine Benoist's Beautiful Portrait
This is a fascinating and tantalizing painting by French neoclassical artist Marie-Guillemine Benoist.  Unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be many of her images available on the Internet.  I also liked Amy Crehore's painting The Cat's Passenger used the image from the Portrait d'une négresse (below) riding on a big cat.

Eve Overlooking The Garden
This is an interesting collection of poetry and images by Lotusgreen.

Mums by Kunisada?

Femke Hiemstra
I like these are pretty zany and imaginative illustrations and paintings from the Netherlands.  However, Lucky the Cat is a little too weird even for me! ;-)
