This is known as fore-edge painting, and is a technique that dates back to the mid-seventeenth century. With this incredible work you can get some real paintings on the edge of books' pages, however, visible only by bending them. Most experts could even get to the double square, which revealed a different picture if bent in one direction or another.

See the painting hidden in the gilt edges of the pages of the book!! It's called fore-edge painting, and this book is one of several in Cornell University Library - Rare and Manuscript Collections.
