Books from Keith’s library.

Today my friend brought a bag full of antique books that had illustrations – engravings.

Here are my favourite pages , I like how diverse it is, the black and white illustration, how picture can be created from  a few lines to a completely bussy patterns engraving that holds many different marks. I think that when illustrating in black and white – then ornament works the best and thease differences between engraved fields creates optical space.imageimageimageimageimage
