Hendrik Van Loon’s “Book-Mark for The Arts”

A few months ago, Kejda and I were perusing Dewolfe and Wood’s bargain book bin. We came across a gem of a book – The Arts by Hendrik van Loon (published in 1937). I’ve much enjoyed reading van Loon’s honest and very personal account of art history, spanning all ages and all types of civilizations.

Included with the book was an original perfect condition bookmark, which I wanted to scan for preservation. I don’t think van Loon would mind me sharing it here with you.
