Lectures Françaises, A Conversational Approach to Reading, A Reading Approach to Conversation: Book I Elementary, Book II Intermediate

Stanley Burnshaw, Cambridge, Massachusetts, 1946

Description

Juror Notes

The manuscript for these volumes must have presented the designer with many problems. In the finished books one sees them solved with well-ordered typography. The double-spread title pages are attractive and the binding designs are excellent. The presswork leaves much to be desired.
