We’re so thrilled to introduce the two 75th Anniversary Editions of The Grapes of Wrath we worked on for Viking. Both are on sale this Thursday, April 10th and there are few projects we’ve ever been happier to see come to press.
The hardcover edition replicates many details from the 1939 Viking First Edition: the original jacket illustration by Elmer Hader; the font (Janson Std.); text setting and design; original blurbs; and the flap copy. It also features newly designed endpapers by Michael Schwab Studio.
Second, our leather-bound limited edition was inspired by Steinbeck’s editor, Pascal Covici, and his love for creating beautiful limited editions of Steinbeck’s books. It features the same text setting as the hardcover wrapped in gorgeous leather. The cover, designed by Michael Schwab Studio, recounts the Joad Family’s journey in three striking images. This book also features designed endpapers, a gold topstain, and a California poppy-orange reading ribbon.
