Content Description

H. Lawrence Hoffman bookjacket covers digital files: 1. Jpg images of 541 book jacket covers. Although he created over 650, I only have images for 541. The images are of different sizes and conditions. I have done my best to restore them to the original condition. They are organized by book title. My father saved almost none of his original art work but over recent years my brother and I have collected the books when possible or at least the images. 2. An excel spreadsheet giving the Book Title, Publisher, Author and Year for each of the 541 book covers. 3. Four word documents: • H Lawrence Hoffman biography • An introduction I wrote for a 2015 Exhibit on his early paperback covers • "Hoffman on Illustrating Book Covers" an article written in the early 1970's that describes his illustrating protocol • "The Fluctuations in Early Mass Market Paperback Book Cover Designs". Something I wrote for the 2015 exhibit.
