Re: fore-edge redux



Briefly, with a clamp fan the foredge of the book into a wedge.  With
rather dry watercolors, paint a scene on that foredge -while it is
"fanned".  When dry, release the clamp and the edge goes back to square and
the picture "vanishes" until the foredge is fanned again.  The foredge may
be gilded or even marbled which would remove any trace of the painting and
hide it's presence completely.  It can even have two paintings by doing the
same thing with the foredge fanned in the opposite direction.
