The Books of WAD, A Bibliography of the Books designed by W.A. Dwiggins

Dwight Agner, Baton Rouge, Louisiana, 1974

Description

The primary concern was to present the information as clearly and concisely as possible.  A marginal column was used for reference numbers (to give them a standard, easy-to-find-position), and for annotations. The use of ornaments originally drawn by Dwiggins provides visual identification of the subject of the bibliography. Not otherwise the book is not patterned after his own work.
