John Steinbeck is one of the greatest American writers, and The Grapes of Wrath is one of the greatest American novels. In creating a set of Steinbeck books in our custom jackets, we took a lot of time settling on a design that was fitting for such a literary giant. It turned out the best idea was staring right at us – the iconic imagery from Elmer Hader’s original design for the first edition of The Grapes of Wrath. We added our own touches and put the titles contained within each book on the front and back of each jacket in a classic typewriter font, a nod to Steinbeck’s screenwriting days. Now you can delve into the works of a true master with these editions, published by Library of America.
