…. just very good indeed. Isaac Tobin’s jacket designs, mainly for the University of Chicago Press.
Pointer from The Book Design Review, a while back.

Interestingly, this seems not to be the final jacket – this is the book’s page at the University of Chicago Press – but I think this one’s better, implying as it does that this sort of thing was going on just a bit earlier than one might have thought…
