H.G.Wells - The Time Machine - special edition

Previous ◁ | ▷ Next

This special edition of The Time Machine was printed in 1931 at the height of the Art Deco period. It was conceived by the publisher as a celebration of the books 'modernness' and they arranged to have it illustrated in the art deco fashion by W.A.Dwiggins who is probably most noted for coining the term 'Graphic Designer' in 1922 in reference to himself. His work encompassed book design, lettering, typography and calligraphy. 

The book is in superb condition and includes its own slipcase.
