The Art of American Book Covers 1875-1930

(Inbunden)
Beskrivning:

At the turn of the twentieth century book design was more than a craft. It was a labour of love at the forefront of art. Readers accustomed to today's more utilitarian book covers will find breathtaking images here - gold leaf patterns intricate enough to replicate the shimmer of feathers, forests rendered in rich colour and silver, and elegant allusions to Asian art. The diversity and ingenuity of these books will capture the imagination of book lovers and collectors - and anyone who enjoys engaging design. Selecting beautifully crafted and influential pieces, author Richard Minsky, the internationally exhibited artist, collector, and founder of the Center for Book Arts, uncovers the world behind a lost art. Richard discusses the role of women, technology, the use of silhouettes, pattern, poster style and more. He also reveals key artists, their signature designs and flourishes, the designs they inspired and the designs that inspired them. "The Art of American Book Covers: 1875-1930" is a beautifully embossed hardback, filled with gorgeous colour reproductions.
