Aubrey Beardsley: The Fin-de-Siecle Magician of Light and Darkness
26cm x 19cm. 240 pages, colour illustrations. Illustrated french fold wrappers.
First full English edition. “In a brief life and even briefer career — he died of tuberculosis in 1898 aged 25 — Aubrey Beardsley created some of the late 19th-centurys most well-known images, including illustrations for Oscar Wildes Salome, Sir Thomas Malorys Le Morte dArthur and The Tales of Edgar Allen Poe. This new edition features more than 180 of Beardsleys works, influenced by Japanese woodblock printing and infused with his fascination for the grotesque and the sexual.” (publisher’s blurb)
