Classic Book Jackets: The Design Legacy of George Salter
Thomas S. Hansen
9.6 x 8 inches
It's said that you can't judge a book by its cover. George Salter, a legendary figure in the field of book design, never subscribed to this belief. For more than forty years, his beautifully drawn and lettered jackets served as elegant windows into the works of such renowned authors as Albert Camus, John Dos Passos, Jack London, and Thomas Mann.
Classic Book Jackets tells Salter's story and describes the innovative thinking he brought to his clients and students. It includes more than two hundred reproductions of his finest works as well as a complete catalog of his jackets, designs, and lettering jobs for the book trade.
