Follow up from our post last week featuring Autumn, the art and design blog Colossal asked to see all four volumes and posted about them today. These are scientific books on the seasons by Robert Mudie from 1837 and were donated by Charlotte Smith. See it in the catalog: http://infohawk.uiowa.edu/F/?func=find-b&find_code=SYS&local_base=UIOWA&request=002786455

See the post on Colossal! “Secret Fore-edge Paintings Revealed in Early 19th Century Books at the University of Iowa”

Even more dimensions to books.

Beautiful.
