About This Item
London: Collins, 1965. No Binding. Very Good. Draft dustjacket design for the reissue of Blunden's classic account of battalion life on the Somme and in Flanders between 1915 and 1918. In this version the unnamed artist has laid out the montage, jotting a handwritten credit to the Imperial War Museum for the photograph of the stricken tank over a gouache backdrop of orange, red and crimson with white lettering. Handwritten notes point to changes that were subsequently made in the design such as the increase in size for the author's name above the title. The unnamed artist has used card with scored lines demarcating front cover from spine. Very Good 1965
