Mise en Page: The Theory and Practice of Lay-Out
The Studio Ltd., London 1931 - 1931 Edition in English with French text provided at the end of the book. Internally VERY GOOD+, in worn binding. A uniquely imagined and produced work on graphic design, featuring innovative mixed-media layouts with striking interplay of type, illustration and photography; utilizing such techniques as lithography, pochoir, and collage , and using special pigments, papers and colored foils. There are 16 plates with constructions and/or produced from special materials. Text pages are printed in black and light blue, and generously illustrated with black & white halftones. Pages are near fine. Neatly penned owner name on title page (Helen Hunt Bencker - very possibly the artist/illustrator Helen Hunt Bencker Hoie for the handwriting closely resembles her signature). Short edge tear to one plate, otherwise pages are complete, clean and unmarked. Blue endpapers are clean and intact. The book is hardcover bound in yellow and black printed paper over boards (front cover also has silver stamping) and a black cloth spine with title stamped in orange. Boards are clean with moderate rubbing, edges worn with board showing at corner tips. The cloth spine, though present, has detached from the boards and there are some old tape repairs, primarily along the rear hinge, that have at least kept the cloth with the book. Spine cloth is tattered and worn. This has affected the strength of the binding and though the book block is still intact it is fragile. The book must have required some hand assembly - likely each copy is, to a degree, unique. 8-1/2 x 10-3/4". Unpaginated. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
