Faber and Faber Diary 2009

The Faber and Faber Diary 2009 marks eighty years of independent publishing. Displaying a week to a view and illustrated in colour throughout with book designs, letters and poems, the diary reflects the changing face of Faber’s publishing over the years since Geoffrey Faber founded the company in Bloomsbury in 1929.

From T. S. Eliot’s charming illustrations for the 1939 edition of Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats to the iconic work of in-house designer Berthold Wolpe, there is a huge diversity and richness of material to accompany each week of the year.
