American Book Covers Display

The 50 years between 1875 and 1925 were the "Golden Age" of book cover art in America. Publishers commissioned contemporary artists to create covers that would grab the eye of bookstore browsers.  Here you see a sampling of the many decorative book covers from this time period in our own collection.

If you look closely you can see the small artist monograms or devices on the covers.
