Publishers Bindings through the
movements in the design and overall look of publishers' bindings
can be better understood
by reviewing the bindings
themselves as a group by decade. We have created a gallery
search for eleven periods covered in the scope of the PBO
project. In addition, each decade gallery provides end
users with interesting information
the styles of that period, as well as some insight into
the major literary, cultural, and historical events that
during the decade.
These decades galleries are interesting
to explore not only on a visual level, but they also prove excellent tools for the study
of American history and culture. Click on a book or a date
