japonisme: down to the sea in ships

07 December 2006

down to the sea in ships

on her stunning anthology of a website, featuring dozens of beautifully illustated books, the webmaster says, [Die Nibelungen by Carl Otto Czeschka is] "The best Art Nouveau illustrated book. Period ! The scans doesn't do justice to the images, heightened in gold. A pure delight. Enjoy."

czeschka was a member of the wiener werkstaette and the vienna secession.

the whole of hokusai's manga volume one is here. if anyone knows of anywhere the others are in their entirety, i'd love to know.

thanks!
