Secret Fore-Edge Paintings Revealed in Early 19th Century Books at University of Iowa | Daily Mail Online

"Known as 'fore-edge paintings' (the fore-edge is the opposite of the spine), their existence at all has lain a secret to many since the practice began centuries ago."

'Look more closely, however, and you will see a beautiful and intricate painting hidden on the edges of the pages. '

'At first glance, the 200-year-old books are handsomely bound, with the edges of their pages painted in gilt. '

'Fore--edge painting dates back to the 10th century, but the practice of disappearing fore-edge paintings, when they are hidden when the book is fully closed, is thought to date back to 1649. ', "The pictures were painted first, before gilt was applied later to the very edges to mask the picture's existence."
