You must have come across old, hard-bound books with golden edges on the side. But have you ever noticed the hidden paintings on the edges? Well, one book-lover has. London-based video-editor and photographer Chris Carpineti posted a small clip on Twitter where he revealed the secret.
He wrote: “Did you know some books have secret paintings on the edges of their pages that you can see by aligning them just right??”

Wow! I never realised that. Only that pages of some books have golden edges, and that’s it.
