Cornell University Library

See the painting hidden in the gilt edges of the pages of the book!! It's called fore-edge painting, and this book is one of several in Cornell University Library - Rare and Manuscript Collections

Fantastically beautiful! These must have been hand-crafted, with great care and a lot of time invested.
