Curl, Peter

Artikelnr: 5673 Kategorier: , ,


The Studio Limited, London. 1956. First edition. 96 pages. Small 4to (25 x 19,5 cm). Red cloth with black lettering on spine in original illustrated dust jacket. Dust jacket is poor condition – jacket is chipped, worn, paper loss and torn (Sic!). lllustrated in black and white and partly coloured photographic reproductions. In the Series ”How to do it 65”.

”If the jacket of this book attracts you, if its title is clear and if it reflects accurately the style and contents of the pages within, then it is successful”. This reflection on the tab of the dust jacket gives a hint of its content. The author, Peter Curl, stresses that whatever the elements of book jacket design – typography, photography, pattern, pen and ink sketch or full colour illustration – the artist’s own integrity, imagination and inspiration are the factors upon which success depends. An important effort on book jacket design.
