From the 1920s, as the potential for the book’s protective wrapping to be used for promotion and enticement became clear, and artists and illustrators on both sides of the Atlantic applied their talents to this particular art form.
Rising to the wide-ranging challenges posed by format and subject matter, artists and illustrators including John Piper, Edward Bawden and John Minton in the UK and Ben Shahn, Edward Gorey and George Salter in the USA, brought their unique personal vision to bear on the world of books.
