Another cool one by John + Mary Condon.
Love the tight Akzidenz.
This blind deboss would be even cooler if it matched the (upper- and lowercase) front and spine.
J+M Condon! Can’t find a year.
Of course I love me some overprinting shapes, but what I really admire about this is the gutsy decision to force the = in there as the Q, even though it really doesn’t work. That said, it does still read.
Designed by husband and wife team (of course!) James and Ruth McCrea. (A new one for the list…)
Simple and appropriate. Love it.
By Ed and Jane Bedno. Another husband and wife design duo!
Cover design by Donald + Ann Crews.
A little light reading. Published in 1958, but not sure when this cover (for the 5th printing) was designed. But it did say it was by John+Mary Condon.
Pretty different from this one, but for the same publisher, Touchstone. (Some time after 1960.)
In addition to starting a category for husband and wife design teams, I should start one for covers featuring grids of abstract shapes. Like this, this, and (sort of) this, as well as a bunch I ain’t posted yet.
Poor guy. I know just how he feels.
Looks like it was designed by another husband and wife team: “John+Mary Condon”—I’m gonna hafta start a category for that!
Oh man. I love this one. So simple. So nice. 1969, going by a handwritten note inside the cover.
Interestingly, this is the second in a row that was designed by an apparent husband and wife team: “Donald + Ann Crews.”
