George Salter: A Legacy of Book Design

George Salter (1897-1967) was one of the most prolific and influential book designers of the 20th century whose distinguished career included works for all the major publishing houses in both the United States and Germany. This exhibition on his career and design philosophy draws on a collection of hundreds of books from the library of the Leo Baeck Institute with jackets designed by Salter.
