    Got curious about the gorgeous and well-used books I got from my mother a few years ago, and looked some up. Evidently people are selling pages out of this one on eBay! [1924 edition, turns out] I am as sure as I can be for someone who can’t be proven wrong, but I believe it likely belonged to her father, who was a graphic artist like myself; she was a painter, like my sister.

      Old books are often cut up for the plates in them. People frame and display them. I have rescued a few pre-surgery. I have few with prints pulled by the artist in them.

      I guess I’m just surprised I own something like that and didn’t realize. I worked at a vintage frame shop for years- we did it! ????
