The Book is Out, Reviews are In

The Art of American Book Covers, 1875-1930 is now in bookstores and available online.

Here are some quotes, with links to the full review:
"Whether you curl up and read it, shelve it for reference, or place on the coffee table, this is one book you don’t want to miss."

"A perceptive introductory essay makes excellent use of both small illustrations within the text and reference to larger illustrations in the main body of the book to offer perspective on the place of these works and their often anonymous creators within the context of the trends in art and design of the late 19th and early 20th centuries."

"One look at Dodd, Mead and Co.'s 1880 wraparound cover for Richard Markham's Aboard The Mavis will instantly explain why someone (you) will want to procure Minsky's book."
