A selection of the esoteric decorative print genre known as marbled paper that was most often seen adorning the endpapers of 19th century books, although the decorative paper has been and is used for myriad purposes from luggage lining to wrapping paper. Having first appeared in Japan in the 12th c. marbling made its way to Europe via Turkey where the art flourished. It died out a lot with the automated book publishing late in the 19th c. but is making a revival in recent times.

A wide range of artist books from the School of the Art Institute in Chicago. The images come from one-off ephemera musical & self-published political works to books by famous authors and artists. Much of it owes a nod to Dada, with quite a few typographic abstractive works among them. http://digital-libraries.saic.edu/jfabc

An unknown artist in ~1606 created a watercolour album of flower species by painting them next to allegorical engravings and tournament illustrations from a couple of festival works from the late 1500s. It ends up as a pastiche of beauty, words and weird.
