Daily Book Graphics #312 / Bird Portraits

©1901 / limited edtion # 146 of 1000. This is the first book cover for this project where I did not actually scan the book myself. My Father emailed me this from my Grandfather's house in Florida. I need to go down there with my scanner and comb through his library.

Daily Book Graphics #309 / Philosphical Sketches

©1962 / I previously posted a S. Neil Fujita cover in DBG#268. I hadn't bothered to Google him until now, and it turns out that he is responsible for some pretty iconic work, including the Godfather logo and the cover of Dave Brubeck's Take Five album. Steven Heller interviews Fujita here.
