Description
In 1928 G. Govane published an illustrated version of Charles Baudelaire's famous "Les Fleurs du Mal (the Flowers of Evil)" --a series of Symbolist poems regarding decadence and eroticism in French modernity--with hand-colored lithographs by Lydis. However, as this impression features full sheet margins with no sign of being once bound or tipped-in, we wonder if perhaps there was a separate portfolio published alongside the book.
