B4175. Villu Toots: 100 Book Covers / Varik
B4175. Villu Toots: 100 Book Covers, 1956-1992 by Mart Varik. Introduction by Pyotr Chobitko. 2017. 129pp. 5"x7.875". Paper

"Villu Toots might have been the most original calligrapher ever." -Carl Rohrs

"Villu Toots, whose incredible work looks effortless, was the ultimate calligrapher's calligrapher. He was one of the all-time greats of the 20th century, as important as Koch, Schneidler, Zapf, and Poppl. No one had more versatility, flair, or fluidity." -Julian Waters

B4141. Classic Book Jackets: The Design Legacy of George Salter/Hansen
B4141. Classic Book Jackets: The Design Legacy of George Salter by Thomas Hansen. 2004. 200pp. 8.2"x9.8". Paper


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 covers served as elegant windows onto the works of such revered authors as Albert Camus, John Dos Passos, Jack London, and Thomas Mann. Salter had the rare ability to reduce the illustrated dust-jacket -- a new part of the book package -- to its essential elements. He could visually evoke -- with typography, calligraphy, and pictorial imagery -- the contents of any given book.

B4140. Ladies of Letterpress: A Gallery of Prints
B4140. Ladies of Letterpress: A Gallery of Prints by Jessica White and Kseniya Thomas. 2015. 192pp. 11.1"x14". Paper

Presents work from over 80 presses with a woman at the helm. You get to see an amazing range of pieces, from greeting cards to broadsides and posters, printed in a variety of type, lettering, and illustration styles. Each piece is accompanied by details of paper, inks, and press used in its printing, along with a profile of its printer. The photography and printing are superb, often showing the paper texture and the bite of the printing into the sheet. An unusual feature is that all the pages are perforated, so you can detach and post or frame any of the 80 full-page examples. There are also four interviews with proprietors of these inventive establishments.

B4136. Sketchbook Project World Tour, The / Peterman
B4136. The Sketchbook Project World Tour by Steven Peterman. 2015. 224pp. 8.2"x10.2". Paper

Destined to go down as one of the era's most astonishing global art projects, the Brooklyn Art Library's Sketchbook Project has, in less than a decade, amassed more than thirty thousand sketchbooks submitted by people of all ages and artistic abilities from more than 130 countries. Bursting with color, vivid imagery, and bouts of whimsy mixed with deeply intimate insights, the sketchbooks capture the texture of personal experience in a dizzying variety of illustrative styles and layouts that run the gamut from street portraits to stream-of-consciousness doodles, comics, and pop-ups. This volume presents the most compelling, surprising, and visually stunning examples from this one-of-a-kind artistic treasury.
