Folio Friday – February

Folio Friday is an opportunity for us to share some of the amazing artwork found within The Minton Archive’s folios with you, and the series is now five years old! As well as our traditional return to the very first featured Art & Design folio, SD 1705/MS1705, there’s also some extra frivolity to be had as we celebrate this special milestone…

SD 1705/MS1705

Class letter CCC. Folio number 27. Japanese themes; many coloured; 125 items.

Zoom in and out with your mouse’s scroll wheel or by using the on-screen controls. Click and drag the image to move it around. On touch-enabled devices drag the image with your finger and pinch to zoom.

As mentioned above it’s also time for our second Folio Frivolity catch-up, where we condense a fortnight’s worth of tweeted folio highlights – each one a mini-homage to this half-decade old series – into a gallery bursting with wonderful artwork details. There’s more background info in our first bit of frivolity; the latest images are below!
