About the site
A book jacket every day or so, that’s the plan.
To begin with, we will concentrate on Ismar’s work in the book field. The Archive in the Cary Collection at RIT has almost all the known titles, and the jackets are a fine way to follow the development of Ismar’s distinctive style. It will be hard, however, not to post some additional material from time to time.
2009 UPDATE: Time races by and some book work, including Ismar’s great The Psalms, remains to be posted. However quite a few photos of architectural work at Pinelawn are now up, as well as early (from his time in Jerusalem) and other graphics. Still more to come.
2010 UPDATE: A somewhat slow start to the year, but IDEA has migrated to a new server with an upgrade to WordPress and the InterCity Express is back on track. A very few of the book jackets are simply missing. Alot of the architectural work is online and a good amount of the extant early work. Still more to come.
The publication information for each book entry comes from the bibliography in The Work of Ismar David, RIT Cary Graphic Arts Press, 2005.
