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.

B3558. Cut & Fold Techniques for Pop-Up Designs / Jackson
B3558. Cut and Fold Techniques for Pop-Up Designs by Paul Jackson. 2014. 128pp. 8.75"x8.75". Paper

While marketed to designers, this book is a gem for those of us making objects by hand. Use these simple techniques to create exciting, but surprisingly easy-to-make, 3-D designs. Each pop-up is cut from a single sheet of paper, which is ideal for cards, but they are equally suited for bookmakers when the designs are repeated in an accordion fold structure. The emphasis is on surface design over complex cutting. Each chapter introduces a new technique and shows it can be adapted in many different ways or combined with techniques from earlier chapters.
