Yes! Another one from the series. Only two problems: 1. this one’s a paperback, and 2. it’s not mine. This is another “guest post” from my pal Sam Grawe from our day competing for Chicago’s worship-worthiest books.
Gotta love the continuing use of this basic motif. And the black and yellow. Cover designed by Toshihiro Katayama.
From guest contributor, Sam Grawe comes this rare gem put together by the Reynolds Company. Crazy slipcase and stamped cloth casewraps. So good.
According to the last page: “Design by the Styling and Design Department. Reynolds Metal Company.”
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!
Another nerdy science title, though one’s a tad later than I like to feature here, 1980. But I love the graphic. Arrows and pattern. Nice. I also love how the subtitle does nothing to clarify what this is about.
Designed by Gwen Frankfeldt.
Hard to go wrong with a Pelican (or Penguin) from this era. This one’s particularly nice—what designer doesn’t love big, coarse halftones? And I’d actually like to read it, though it’s 50 years old and I’m sure there’s more up-to-date info on the subject.
Designed by Larry Carter.
Sounds a little sinister. But the experiment was simply using audio to teach a foreign language. Hence the big reel—which is how audio tape came back in 1964.
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.”
This is a great graphic. Though I think it’d be even better without the little letters/annotations. But whaddya wanna bet the designers tried that and the author said they needed to be there? This book is equations almost cover to cover.
Oh yeah, and I said designerS: Ed and Jane Bedno—a husband and wife team? That’s pretty cool, too.
