As printing technology made important advances and modern marketing techiques developed in the 1800s, covers and jackets became increasingly decorative and integral to the total book concept. Charting the evolution of graphic styles during these crucial decades this text documents how designers and illustrators reflect the sensibilities of their age and attract children's attention. Filled with beautiful color illustrations. Very fine.
