Isn't it time to start thinking about a Halloween costume?

These beautiful hand-colored lithographs from 19th century Austria might give you some ideas. You rarely see such fine work in this day and age of lazy Photoshoppers. Here at the hammer, we revere the masters of old illustration. These fanciful "grotesques" are attributed to Rappelais.

See you at the Cafe Racer Halloween art party Saturday, October 27th. (see entry below for details)
