Off topic - Fraktur
So, that sent me off looking at fraktur art again and I ran across this cool piece. It is just under 8x10-inches and sold for $53,125 at Sotheby's. It warms my heart to see funky little designs on paper go for prices like that. In some ways, it's absurd. But, in other ways, I get a kick out of such humble work by anonymous artists being valued.
I do have a fraktur label, but it only shows two marker envelopes. I'll try to go back and find the other fraktur items.
