Sold: 1920 Motto Book Roycroft/ Roycrofters, Dard Hunter Cover, Elbert Hubbard


Out of stock


Here is a nice Roycroft booklet: The Motto Book, with a beautiful full color cover design by famed designer Dard Hunter. Signed with Hunter’s initials (DH) in the corner. It is a little book, 67 pages, with hundreds of Roycroft mottos printed in small type (and 2 copies of actual motto cards tipped in). Many by Hubbard himself, some lifted from other places (like the Bible!). Copyright 1920; not the first Motto book the Roycrofters published, but with one of the best covers. About 5×7.5″.

In good condition. The artwork is clean; a little loss to ends of paper spine, minor crinkling to overhanging yapp edges. Inside, complete but with some folding/slight edge and page corner tears.
