"PHILIP REISMAN": In A-D, An Intimate Journal for Art Directors.

(New York: A-D Publishing Co., 1940). First edition. 20-page essay by Goodman on Reisman and his work in the Oct.-Nov. 1940 issue of "A-D, An Intimate Journal for Art Directors, Production Managers, and their Associates." Essay on Reisman is illustrated with 8 full-page drawings, three of which are in color, and 10 half-page illustrations; both covers feature color reproductions of Reisman's work (appear to be from a WPA mural). Includes several illustrations from Tolstoy's ANNA KARENINA (Random House, 1940) which, according to Goodman, was a Book-of-the-Month Club "Book Dividend." He goes on to say there were close to 200,000 copies distributed. But judging by the relatively few copies offered online, that number seems unlikely. Also includes a "project illustration for Steinbeck's THE GRAPES OF WRATH," an unpublished piece. Following the Goodman piece on Reisman is "Ballet of the A B Cs," a "typographic keepsake" illustrated by Emery I. Gondor; a Hubert Davis portfolio; and several ads. Near fine in pictorial paperwraps measuring 5 1/2 x 8". Interesting little item. AN INTERESTING LITTLE ITEM.
