Throughout the 19th and early 20th centuries, artists and writers often created colorful illustrated letters. Drawing on years of research, this unique book examines this lost art form-and reproduces striking letters by 60 notable correspondents, including 36 missives that have never before been published. The artists and writers represented include Balzac, Victor Hugo, Beatrix Potter, Picasso, Delacroix, Baudelaire, Turgenev, Manet, Verlaine, van Gogh, Gauguin, Mallarm, Rimbaud, Saint-Sans, Saint-Exupry, Magritte, Cocteau, Mir, and Le Corbusier, to name just a few. Each of their letters appears on a full-color spread, accompanied by a translation of the letter and biographical sketches of the writer and recipient, setting each missive in cultural and historical context. 370 illustrations, 325 in full color, 101 1/8 x 1211/2" Roselyne De Ayala is a French scholar and editor who specializes in historical texts.
