Distributed for The Grolier Club

A Century for the Century

This Grolier Club catalogue reproduces 100 of the most beautiful, finely printed books produced during the 20th century, arranged in chronological order. The idea of one book a year, on average, seems almost presumptuous. Yet one must begin somewhere, and celebrate the chosen, rather than lament the many left unsung. The catalogue gives a glimpse of how the generations of the past century displayed knowledge and taste in raising printing to an art. Introductory essays by the authors.

110 pages | 46 color plates, 54 halftones | 9 1/4 x 12 1/4
