dog deco

image and book in public domain
Neat huh?  This is the copyright page from George Barr McCutcheon's novel The Day of the Dog.  Almost every page has an embellishment at the bottom - a sheaf of wheat, three pots of blooms, the occasional story character - all done in sinuous Art Deco style.
