I’ve now completely finished my 5000 word dissertation! Printed and bound too (here it is) ready to hand in monday morning! But anyway I’ll keep posting some of the designers and illustrators I’ve been researching, because I said I’d have a Mid-Century Modern themed week.
The First Book of Jazz by Langston Hughes, Illustrated by Cliff Roberts. Can’t seem to find out much more about Cliff Roberts, I think he worked in animation too, but this book looks so nice. Love the illustrations and that orange cover! These pictures are from here (german version) & here, the are loads more here on the flickr of brilliant book designer David Pearson.
