Synopsis

The Illustrated Dust Jacket: 1920-1970 by Martin Salisbury

A deep dive into the history of the illustrated book jacket, tracing its development across the twentieth century, reflecting some of the most iconic designs of the era

Reviews

Salisbury's book shows that the greatest jackets tint our experiences of the books they grace. He guides us with easy authority through a delightful graphic history of all-too-often underappreciated literary pleasures and reminds readers just how much wonderful art they may have hidden away on their shelves. For those who never paused to think much about jackets, this book will be a revelation. For those who do, it will be nothing less than a thrill. Lushly illustrated, Salisbury's exciting visual history showcases the work of Edward Gorey, Vanessa Bell, Alvin Lustig, and many others. The Illustrated Dust Jacket, 1920-1970 by Martin Salisbury, chronicles how this once disposable object became a major creative force in publishing.
