Binding for Jean Ingelow's Poems

Albert Warren, designer


Elaborate gilt blocking on blue cloth, with a recessed central panel in white.

9¼ x 6¾ inches

Though unsigned, this cover is listed in the Longman Archive at the University of Reading, United Kingdom, as one of Warren's designs. It exemplifies his interest in combinations of strict geometry and organic features. In this binding, as in several others by this artist, the central panel is recessed, with lettering in gilt placed against a white field.
