Dutch Decorative Books

This week Visual Arts Data Service launches a small collection of decorated books from the London College of Communication. The LCC's collection of decorated Dutch books provides primary source material for bookbinding research and is also of use to graphic design and typographical researchers. The collection includes bindings in the Nieuwe Kunst and Art Nouveau styles by artists such as Jozef Cantre, Jan Toorop, and P.A.H. Hofman.
