The Art of American Book Covers: 1875-1930

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

http://minsky.com/art-american-book-covers.htm

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:

*This cover is stamped with a single die in one stamping, using the technique I developed for the cover of the first volume of

A.merican Decorated Publishers' Bindings, 1872-1929
