The Book-Cover Designs of Alice C. Morse


This sketch for a book cover by Alice Cordelia Morse (1863-1961) is a far cry from what book covers look like today. With its organic forms and handmade attributes, My Study Fire is an example of the late 19th-century characteristic Arts and Crafts/Art Nouveau style in America.
