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.
