293 pages. "After the American Civil War people were looking for ways to entertain themselves at home, and as a result, piano sales went through the roof, with more than 25,000 pianos being sold every year. By 1887 more than half a million young people were studying the piano.

The immense interest in piano music generated a need for sheet music of the most popular songs of the time, and by 1910, thirty million sheet music copies were being sold every year. At the same time, advances in printing technology allowed publishers to print high-quality art images on their sheet music covers, which acted as an advertisement for the sheet music. Publishers discovered that people would buy sheet music just because they liked the cover, even if they weren’t familiar with the song. Displayed on a piano, the sheet music cover functioned as decorative art when not being used to play a song. The sheet music covers of this period employed a variety of subject matter, but images of beautiful women proved to be the most popular, and the art created for these covers proved to be one of the highest forms of
commercial art produced during that period of time. It also created a great opportunity for talented artists, providing them with a substantial and lucrative market for their art."

Impractical?



Yes, coffee table books are usually large and lavish with lots of colour photography - not practical on a tablet & even less so on a Kindle.
