New Orleans and Bookplates Part One
. New Orleans , the home of Newcomb College and The Newcomb Art Pottery nurtured many female artists . Some of the instructors and their students also designed bookplates.A most useful book about the pottery and the designers is Louisiana's Art Nouveau,The Crafts of The Newcomb Style by Suzanne Ormond. There are too many designers to cover in one posting so I will focus on bookplates by Anne McKinney Robertson (1887-1959) and continue with other designers next week. If you have any bookplates by this artist which are not shown here please send scans to Bookplatemaven@Hotmail.com so they can be included..
See you next week.
