Afloat and Ashore on the Mediterranean





Lee Meriwether (1862-1966)
Afloat and Ashore on the Mediterranean
New York: Scribner, 1892

Black and gold on reddish brown cloth.

Here we have the earliest example in this exhibit of Armstrong’s decorative design. The ornamental gold crab and large A offer an eye-catching design on an otherwise plain cover. Drastically different from other more stylistic bindings you’ll see, Afloat and Ashore... is an exemplar of how Armstrong tailored her style and designs to the subject at hand.
