N-LP005 Corticelli Silk Mills – Parody on The House That Jack Built
Small advertising booklet, stapled, 8 pages not including covers. Dated 1882. Starting with the Corticelli Silk Mills, each page adds a couple of lines to the previous page, all singing the praises of Florence Silk that was produced by Corticelli. Very nice illustrations around the text. Original colors were light green ink on a tan background.

A-MH080 Musée des Familles, Modes Vraies – Square design with Egyptian inspired motifs
Single sheet, lithographed pattern, showing a corner of a nearly square pattern with presumed Egyptian motifs. Because the pattern is not entirely symmetrical both a complete version and a partial pattern are included.

We are currently not actively soliciting donations, since New Media Arts is transitioning to foundation status.

If you would like to help us, introducing the Library to people who don’t know of it yet, is very useful, since it broadens our user base and therefore also our future donor base. Blogs, tiktok, instagram, pinterest, ravelry, facebook, other social media – show others your favorite publications and what you made using them. Our work is only useful when people actually use it!
