Vlaminck Dinosaurs

This is one that came through jurassically technological and a real trip to do, too.

Vlaminck was a Fauve--wild manic--who long outlived his fellows, well into the era of signed limited editions.

This particular book (1958) I got at the library book sale for $2, in great condition, original plastic cover, superbly printed.

Superbly like an art book. #1076 of a limited edition of 2000.

On abebooks I saw a similar copy going for $250.

And I spent $2 more for a cutting-edge dinosaur book and $1 for another.

All together, I figure it's now a $253 down payment on Vlaming dessert. My Fauve pas.
