Faber and Faber: Eighty Years of Book Cover Design
As part of Faber's eightieth anniversary celebrations, Joseph Connolly - book collector, antiquarian dealer, and acclaimed novelist - has compiled an impassioned guide and love letter to the designers, artists and authors at the heart of Faber's design story.
From its beginnings in the 1920s and 1930s on to the classic years of innovation under Berthold Wolpe after the War, and from the celebrated period of collaboration with Pentagram on to the modern day, here is, as he concludes in his preface, 'a lavish celebration of the art and beauty of these magnificent covers, from just the first eighty years'.
'Following an enlightening history of Faber itself, there's also an appreciation of Berthold Wolpe ... there's a wealth of great work here ... the covers are lovely to look at.' Creative Review
