Chisholm, Theory of Knowledge, second edition (1977)

A lost art

For an all-too-short period of recent history, design ruled in the academic publishing industry.  Paperbacks were produced in a startling array of colors and abstract designs -- from the bold and the beautiful to the laughably garish.  This great tradition of cover design is dead, or very nearly so.  This blog will draw on the resources of my collection of philosophical books to preserve the lost art.  Suggestions for future posts are most welcome.
