Abstract:

"The book artist Fritz Kredel (1900-1993) is best known in the United States for his work illustrating classic titles published by the Limited Editions Club in a collaboration that began before his emigration from Germany in 1936 and extended well into the 1970s. A student of the German William Morris, Rudolf Koch (and a woodcutter of many of Koch's designs), in Germany he was associated as a book designer and illustrator above all with the Insel publishing firm. His range was wide (he did the color illustrations of Harvard's collection of glass flowers) and his prestige in his adopted country immense (he designed the presidential seal used at Kennedy's inauguration). Salter's book falls into two parts. The first discusses Kredel's illustrations by subject and sets him into the general context of the book arts of his period. The second divides his bibliography into four sections: illustrated books and illustrations for periodicals; bindings, book jackets, end papers, and title pages ; works not in book form, especially maps ; and Kredel's own writings. A selected bibliography of works about Kredel and an index to the various sections of the bibliography, listing his work chronologically follow. Subsequent editions and variant bindings are identified and described. The book is provided with excellent, abundant illustrations. One criticism: a separate index for publishers would have been useful. "--AQ -- Book trade and Publishing.
