Found in Julian Montegue's fabulous book cover collection, this design is credited to Barbara Gillruth, one of the many unsung mid-century book cover designers who gets zero results on Google.

I can't say if the illustration fits the subject matter (anyone know the book?) but the type certainly fits the image. One wonders which came first.Lydianis pre-digital, designed by Warren Chappell in 1938, but it would have been worth building a kern pair for that 'WA'.

The price is curious. Underinked and on an angle, it appears stamped. But it's also set in Lydian. Wha?
