Fore-edge painter

Fore-edge painters specialise in producing images on books in such a way that they are not instantly visible. Using a large press, the fore-edge painter splays the pages to form a flat canvas, before painting a picture in watercolour. Typically, the edges will be gilded, hiding the picture unless the book is splayed.
