      The Art of Books

      The University of Alabama has partnered with the
      University of Wisconsin-Madison Libraries to
      sponsor Publishers' Bindings Online 1815 - 1930:
      The Art of Books (PBO) at

      http://bindings.lib.ua.edu/.

      The focus of the PBO is build awareness of the role
      book bindings played between 1815 and 1930,
      reflecting art, culture, history and the evolution
      of the binding industry.

      PBO can be searched by keyword or by browsing the
      search term list. My keyword search for 'gold
      embossed' produced 19 results beginning with the
      cover of the 1900 edition of Louisa M. Alcott's
      The Candy Country. The print of the cover can be
      viewed in various sizes. The search results,
      viewable in multiple formats, features publisher
      details with title and subject headings. In
      addition to binding details, subject headings
      include clothing items and landscape types.
      Searches and results can be saved into a history
      for later use. Interesting site, well worth an
      exploration.
