Tenggren’s Story Book

Artists and Writers Guild, George Hornby, 1944

Description

Juror Notes

The variety of text material and of sizes and types of pictures is marshaled into unity on a large page through a double-column arrangement. Good typesetting in an easy measure makes for excellent legibility, and good color reproduction preserves all the brilliance of the pictures. While the lay-out has no changes in pace, it jogs along in a dependable, forthright manner.

Peter Beilenson, Paul McPharlin, Ernst Reichl (Jurors)
