George Braziller, Inc. is publishing The Art of American Book Covers, 1875-1930. It will be in full color and have about 150 images.
It will have a stamped full cloth cover, in keeping with the content. It is a practical demonstration that the gold stamping effects created during the Golden Age can be revived on trade books today using modern technology.
I have designed a full cloth slipcase that will have a stamped spine, and am wrapping the book in it with a clear archival 3 mil polyester (as in "Mylar") dust jacket. There will only be 100 signed and numbered copies of the First Edition in this slipcase. A pre-publication discount subscription to it is available today at
There is a link on the web page to a downloadable PDF with some sample pages.
There is no other publisher I can think of that would have done this at the quality level this will be. This book is featured as the opening double page spread in the Spring/Summer 2010 George Braziller catalog.
Again, the web page for information and pre-publication discount subscriptions is:
