Martin Salisbury

A Big Draw

Professor of Illustration Martin Salisbury has undertaken a labour of love in his most recent book in which he traces the history of the illustrated dust jacket from 1920 to 1970. Those decades bore witness to a revolution in book cover art, with illustrators such as Tove Jansson and Mervyn Peake making their mark. Salisbury discusses this noble pursuit which helped elevate fiction across the 20th century.
