Letters from Proxima Thule

Have you thought about Aubrey Beardsley and other turn-of-the-century English artists as a source of swirly intricate-line inspiration from a European cultural tradition? And/or the Weiner Werkstatte? Because I can imagine wonderful keys in either of those styles that would feel very true to the spirit of your work.

I was also thinking of the Art Nouveau style. Especially if she leans more toward the Horta vortex swirls.

I don't want it to be too twee flowing flowers though...

John Coulthart has some great links here. I was thinking specifically of Josef Hoffmann; some of his bookplates are here, but I think my favorite is the one he designed for Freud.

Swirly, but never twee.
