chromolithographs

ursula


i love this

dreamy ..

time stands still

modaspia is largely based on images like these from fairytales

this is just a close up of a much larger depiction of different design elements.

i’ve been completely lost in this shop. he has an enormous (1,000′s) catalog of prints from very old books otherwise known as chromolithographs. i have some very, very old books with prints like these but can’t imagine dismantling the book itself. still, like some kind of greedy book carnivore i can’t imagine not buying some of these tonight.

i have this one for instance, from lydekker’s natural history book circa 19th c.
