Why We Love This

High Tension: The Recollections of Hugh Baille. Harper Brothers, 1959. First Edition. 300 pages. Cover design by Robert Korn, the Brooklyn based Mid-Century Modernist graphic designer. In his work, Korn aimed to distill the subject down to its essence and capture both the mood of the content and intent of the author. A nice unclipped jacket with some chipping and tears along the top edge. Previous owner's signature in blue ink on the front free endpaper. Otherwise clean interior.
