    "[F]eatures more than eighty of his designs for book covers, and title pages, booklets, brochures, letterheads, and stained glass windows."--Book jacket flap.
    "The distinctive typography and elegant compositions designed by William Joseph "Dard" Hunter (American, 1883-1966) have become icons of the American Arts and Crafts style and have established him as one of America's most influential graphic artists of the twentieth century. At age twenty-one, Hunter talked his way into a summer job at the famed Roycroft arts community in East Aurora, New York, and ended up staying. He had grown up around printing presses--his father was in the newspaper business--and had already dabbled with graphic arts. Under the mentorship of Roycroft leader Elbert Hubbard, Hunter forged his own design path, one that initially found its inspiration in William Morris's Kelmscott Press but quickly shifted to modeling contemporary European design trends....Hunter’s graphic art is what remains instantly recognizable and beloved today. Dard Hunter: The Graphic Works features more than eighty of his designs for book covers and title pages, booklets, brochures, letterheads, and stained glass windows. Accompanied by historical photographs and examples from Hunter's design contemporaries, author Lawrence Kreisman’s illuminating text establishes Hunter as a unique voice that emerged from a multitude of extraordinary influences in an incomparable era of flourishing artistic achievement." -- Publisher's description
