Original Glasgow School Jessie M King First Commissioned Book Cover Arts Crafts For Sale

Original Glasgow School Jessie M King First Commissioned Book Cover Arts Crafts

34.8 cms x 27.5 cms

This ‘Album Von Dresden und Sachsische Schweiz’, has a stunning cover designed by Jessie M King. This elaborate ‘Glasgow School’ design was one of her first two published cover designs, (along with the Album Von Berlin), commissioned by Globus Verlag, after notices in The Studio following her entries to the National Art Competition at South Kensington in 1897, 1898 & 1899. She later went on to become one of the most important and best loved illustrators of the Arts and Crafts movement. (Her contemporaries were, of course, Charles Rennie Mackintosh, Herbert MacNair, Margaret & Frances Macdonald and EA Taylor, so she may have a little competition for this claim!)

Offered in good condition. A little surface, age-related discolouration, and some light scuffing to the edges and corners. Printed on heavy card in black and white, on a grey ground, with highlights of red and green. The artists name appears in the lower right corner. Please see photos.

This original and scarce book would look stunning framed, (the contents are black & white photographs of pre-First WW Berlin and environs, bound in a slim volume).

A copy of this book is held in several museums, and at the Glasgow School of Arts' Rare Books & Special Collections Library. It has also been displayed at the Liberty & Co annual exhibitions.

A rare chance to own the nearest thing you are likely to find, to a Jessie M King, original drawing!

Will be carefully and lovingly packed.
