Hans Tisdall Jacket Designs for Ivor Brown's

Regular readers will know that the jacket designs of Hans Tisdall have become something of a feature on this blog of late. One of the things Tisdall was best known for was his lettering, in fact a number of computer fonts have been created from his letterforms. This set of books are anthologies of words and their meanings and folklore by anti-modernist and sometime editor of The Observer, Ivor Brown. These nine were published from 1942-1955 and all are designed by Tisdall. Brown went on to create at least another two anthologies but these were with a different publisher and designer. For lovers of mid-century design and illustration I think that, as a set, these have lots to offer.
