The graphic images that comprise this package are superior re-creations of borders from the Dent edition of Sir Thomas Malory's Le Morte D'Arthur illustrated by Aubrey Beardsley and published in London in twelve parts from 1893 to 1994.
Each element has been meticulously hand-drawn by AlfredoM in vector format.
Resolution independent vector graphics insures high quality reproduction at any size, allowing, also, complete latitude for modification of each graphic element.

Selected Borders
This collection includes all the usable borders; Beardsley designed other borders for this publication, but they have in the lower left part a large textbox that makes them not suited for general use. The matching borders in facing pages are also available as seamless landscape borders.

Reading about the book and more images

Aubrey Beardsley
By all accounts, Aubrey Beardsley’s brief and highly original artistic life (1872-1898) was prolific. He was born into a well-bred, middle class English family that had known better days and early evidenced prodigal artistic talent. At the age of nine, he was diagnosed with the incurable tuberculosis that eventually claimed his life in France at the age of twenty-five in 1898. No doubt, the disease’s prognosis spurred him to make his mark early in life – and prodded him to take artistic risks in the context of Victorian society.
Beardsley’s originality is often characterized as erotic, mischievous and “naughty” and, indeed, those characteristics played a great role in the ups and downs of his career. But there is equally much to be said for the great sense of style, animation, and delicacy of his drawings. His artistic influences include the early Greeks, the Victorian era Pre-Raphaelite’s school and Japanese art which was in vogue.
Though his first publication was a program for his grammar school while a young pupil, his first professional work was the inspiration for this collection of Aubrey Beardsley’s work, L’Morte D’Arthur. At the age of 19, in 1898, he had accepted a commission from book publisher J. M. Dent to produce the drawings for an edition of the popular medieval Arthurian legend. Though clearly grounded in the pre-Raphaelite style, the drawings exhibited a refreshing and capricious style that diverged from the pre-Raphaelite treatment of the popular legend. Following the publication of L’Morte D’Arthur, Joseph Pennell’s 1893 article on Beardsley (along with new drawings by the artist) in the journal The Studio introduced the general public to this new artist and increased the demand for his work in various publications.
Like a super-nova, he shed a brilliant and unforgettable light on the artistic world comparable to that of Mozart and Chopin in the world of music. Beardsley’s genius leaves us lamenting the wondrous works that might have been and otherwise have been had it not been for tuberculosis.

Vector Graphics
Each decorative image and element is meticulously hand-drawn. Many advanced designers will find our vector file versions with the following desirable feature: preserved, original hierarchies and groupings to facilitate modifications and enable the extraction of unique elements. Though resolution-independent vector formats insure high-quality reproduction at any size and allow complete latitude for pre-production modifications, our CD collections also include common pixel-based file formats of each graphic and a vector format supported by Office applications for desktop publication.
