Life and work of the people of England
a pictorial record from contemporary sources
by Dorothy Hartley and Margaret M. Elliot
The seventeenth century
Elliot, Margaret M.
This cover updates older styles of illustration to help invigorate a new book. Using bright colours and a style reminiscent of medieval illuminations, the artist behind this cover has adapted these elements to create a new look for the cover of this book. The rounded soft lines used on the cover are in line with many designs of the 1920s and 1930s, when this book was produced, making it simultaneously modern and historic in style.
