Publishers release slip laid in. By his death in 1898 at the age of 28, Aubrey Beardsley had already become known as "a precocious line artist who redefined the limits of black-and-white art. His erotic, decadent illustrations for Oscar Wilde's 'Salome' and the famous journal 'The Yellow Book' set the tone of his style: by turns shocking, facetious and cruel." For this first full-length biography in over 20 years, Sturgis deploys much new material and previously untapped sources. ISBN 087951910X. #805.
