Paperbacks, U.S.A., Piet Schreuders
A Graphic History, 1939-1959
In this informative and entertaining description of the first 20 years of paperback history, the emphasis is on the way these early books looked, and especially on their covers: who made them, how they were produced, and how they changed over two decades.
Piet Schreuders, editor and designer of two populair Dutch Magazines (Furore and de Poezenkrant), spent five years researching the roots of this cultural phenomenon and found, besides shameless plagiarism, amateurish drawings and commercially-bred bad taste, a wealth of sensitive, human, original and unique design and art.
