This particular book plate is a figure in the book to demonstrate the use of shading on a drive and brake detail. You will receive the original book plate (the actual page from a book) and not a copy or digital print.
Size: The outside edges of the actual paper measure 10 1/2 inches by 7 1/2 inches. The think black line framework around the inside edge of the design is very close to 8 1/4 by 6 3/4 inches.
Color: The color of this book plate is that typical of a gently yellowed old book page. It is very slightly my darkly yellowed near the edges of the paper. It is not as white as it appears in the first photo. The full page photo with the black border is a very good representation of the beige / very light tan / very gently yellowed patina.
On the back of the page is another drawing lesson and some text. The paper is somewhat thin. However, as you can see in the photo, when laid flat the drawings on the back of the page do not show through. Since the paper is fairly thin, this would need to be mounted prior to framing. This can be done easily yourself with spray adhesive and a poster board, both which can be found in any hobby shop, home improvement store, or “big box” store.
(The black border you see around this print is the black background upon which the print has been laid for the photograph to be taken. There is no mat included with the print.)
Wouldn't this look terrific matted in black or in red or some other bold color and hung in the office of an engineer, mechanic, or car enthusiast? For that matter wouldn’t this look great mounted, matted, and framed in any room in a loft, or other industrial décor?
I will be listing other book plates from this particular book but this is the only one like this, with all these cool gears. So if you like it, the time to buy is now! : )
