A Book of Fifty Drawings
by Aubrey Beardsley and Aubrey Beardsley and Alice Insley




Overview -
Elegant "near-facsimile" edition of Beardsley's best-known works

Aubrey Beardsley (1872-1898) lived a desperately short life and his career spanned just seven years. Nonetheless, his output as a draftsman and illustrator was prolific. Beardsley's subversive illustrations became synonymous with decadence: He delighted in the erotic, shocking audiences with his bizarre sense of humor and fascination with the grotesque. His work was deemed too scandalous by many publishers of the period, but found a suitably unseemly home with the notorious Leonard Charles Smithers (1861-1907). This book, published by Smithers in 1897, is as much a historic document as it is a beautiful introduction to Beardsley's art.
