The Gateway to a Continent
Publication

1939

The text running over the image in this cover shows how text and image can overlap successfully. Playing with text and image like this creates a fresh approach book cover design. The cover design here uses a Classical reference in the form of Mercury, the god of commerce and merchants, to represent the economic powerhouse of New York, and continues the Classical theme in the clean, sparse layout and choice of typeface.
