The Illustrated Dust Jacket 1920-1970


One of our favourite books of 2018 has been The Illustrated Dust Jacket 1920-1970 by Martin Salisbury. This is a book for anyone who loves beautiful dust jackets. It traces the evolution of the book jacket from its functional origins as a plain protective covering. Salisbury celebrates the work of more than 50 artists from Rockwell Kent to Edward Gorey and NC Wyeth, and covers several styles including Art Deco from the 1920s and 1930s.
