Dust Jackets

Online collection of images of "more than 2,000 original specimens of book jackets from trade books." The jackets "are from books published in the United States and Europe during two turbulent decades. Throughout, the illustrations and titles mirror the era's changing political concerns and desires. The dominant Art Deco design trends of the early years are evident." Browse by year, or search by keyword. From the New York Public Library (NYPL).
