Hans Tisdall - Some Jackets

The work of Hans Tisdall (1910-1977) has appeared on this blog before.  He had a long relationship with Jonathan Cape in particular when it came to designing jackets. It doesn't take much to see the connection between this style and the 'look' of The Festival of Britain in 1951, for which Tisdall was one of the designers. Two typefaces, Tisdall Script and Blesk were modelled on his style in the twenty-first century and with the continued interest in mid-twentieth century design his work on both books and textiles are becoming better known and more appreciated.
