"Scattered through the ordinary world there are books and artifacts and perhaps people who are like doorways into impossible realms, of impossible and contradictory truth."

- Jorge Luis Borges.

Lithographies Originales (1896). Georges de Feure (French, 1868-1943). 

Here, represented is a supremely elegant woman of fascinating beauty who is deeply engrossed in her admiration for the cover of the album of lithographs being advertised. The text of Album No. 1 appears on the back of the sheet being held by the woman. The exquisite Art Nouveau image is also self-referential as his signature appears in the lithographic stone at the woman’s elbow.

"I am sitting on my bed. A storm is coming, appropriately. A storm is always appropriate."

- Franz Kafka, from a diary entry written c. December 1919, featured in Diaries, 1910-1923
