Quarto [31 cm] Blue cloth covered boards with decorative silver stamped titles, and silver stamped designs on the front cover. Very good. The extremities are mildly rubbed, the cloth at the spine ends is frayed, and the underlying boards are peeking through at the bottom fore edge corners of the covers. The pages are age-toned.
Illustrated by John Vassos, an artist who played a major role in promoting the Art Deco style in advertising art and book illustration. In Contempo: This American Tempo, Vassos portrays the dehumanizing effects of the machine age.
