Windfalls of Observation: Gathered for the Edification of the Young and the Solace of Others





Edward Sandford Martin (1856-1939)
Windfalls of Observation: Gathered for the Edification of the Young and the Solace of Others
New York: Scribner, 1896

Light green and gold on dark green cloth.

Another example of Armstrong’s skill at tailoring her style to fit the content of the book and the desires of the publishing company. Simple, yet tasteful, the symmetry of the design creates a pleasing cover. Armstrong curtails her generally stylized R to remain within the design of the tree.
