Keynotes was a series of 34 novels and short story collections published by John Lane from 1893. Aubrey Beardsley produced cover designs and embellishments for 22 of the titles in 1895 while he was working on The Yellow Book which John Lane was also publishing. Aubrey Beardsley illustrated the series of modern "woman-friendly" novels published by John Lane in the mid 1890s as a response to the emergence of the concept of the "New Woman". Beardsley and Lane were also working on 'The Yellow Book' at this time. Beardsley's cover design for the first book in the series, George Egerton's "Keynotes", resulted in the series becoming synonymous with fin-de-siècle decadence.
