"A Dictionary Of Symbols" By Tom Chetwynd, Cover Illustration By James Marsh (Granada Publishing Limited, London 1982) Part-2

Naturally, I did buy this book because of its James Marsh cover(!). A British illustrator, designer and author, Marsh (b.1946) was a huge influence on advertising, editorial and publishing art and design in this country - and abroad. He gained fame from the late 1960's (being involved with projects like "The Beatles Illustrated Lyrics" and Warhol's "Chelsea Girls" poster) and went on to become a major figure in the advertising and publishing world in the 70's and 80's - his collaboration with the British pop group Talk Talk on their album covers being one of the most memorable)  I decided to enlarge some sections of this book jacket just to highlight the attention  the artist pays to details and communicative ideas.
