FORE-EDGE PAINTINGS are decorative images applied to the fore-edge of a book, meaning the fourth edge (not the top or bottom edge or spine but the outside/long edge of the pages used by the reader to thumb through the book), so that the painting is not visible when the book is closed. In order to view the image, the book must be open and the PAGES FANNED to reveal it. via Boston Public Library.
