Fore-Edge Painting,

the art of painting the edge of a book,

but you can only see the painting when the pages are fanned in a certain way, we have made a couple of posts about this unusual art before, and here is possibly the the last commercial fore-edge painter in the world, Martin Frost

You can view more of his hidden paintings, in addition to a series of illuminated miniatures, on his website, I wonder if anyone will apprentice his or herself to him, to stop this almost unique art from dying out?
