16 of 16 people found the following review helpful By Curt Potteiger on January 5, 2012
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is NOT the best of Aubrey Beardsley. Many of the illustrations are "expurgated" which mean censored. Dover Publications has deleted key components (shame on those involved) of the illustrations and Beardsley's meaning and artist expression. Genitals, which are on the originals, have been removed from his works thereby altering the actual scene. Beardsley himself said "I have one aim - the grotesque." and "If I am not grotesque I am nothing." He would have been insulted by this publication. This makes this representation of his work a travesty and not representational. Not recommended.

Format: Paperback
Inexpensive collection of Beardsley's black & white illustrations, mostly taken from other Beardsley books in the Dover catalogue. Some erotic penwork, but Aubrey's "obscene" art is quite tame by today's standards. Some of it even adorned the covers of magazines in his own time. Of course, the big value of this collection is that it's copyright free. You can use these illustrations in your crafts & collages or scan them for your websites. So, if you like that old decadent Nineties style (I mean 1890, not 1990), this book is one window you can peek through.

Format: Paperback
Big fan of this book. It's hard to believe he created so much in so little time. This book shows off a lot these works in good detail. I believe this is a must for anyone into art nouveau or Beardsley. Beardsley's use of large black spaces and intricate detail is highly evident in this book. I give it a 8.5 out of 10. Cheers, enjoy.
