  1. Aubrey Beardsley, call your office! Nah, this is more detailed and etching-like than Beardsley, although they do have a lot in common. Very cool, thanks for sharing.

  2. It is a lot like Beardsley, though. I guess with illustrators, those whose names are remembered are often simply among the best examples of the trends of the time.

  3. These are fabulous.

  4. These remind me of Charles Rennie Mackintosh.

  5. I like.
