Third revised edition, seventh printing, first published in 1927 as The Golden Book. "The design of books is as much an art as architecture, or painting, or sculpture--and perhaps of more import to the population at large, in that it exerts an esthetic influence upon more people more frequently than any other art" (introduction).
