The Life and Art of George Fertig


This book is number 2 in the The Unheralded Artists of British Columbia and features the cover design and interior page layouts.

The Unheralded Artists of British Columbia is a series of beautifully designed and well-researched books illustrating the lives and art of previously undocumented important artists of the 1900s–1960s in British Columbia. Combinations of biography and art history, these books are 9.5 inches high and 8 inches wide; softcover with 4-inch French flaps. With generous margins and images of varied size placed throughout, a special design challenge is presented by the need to end each chapter at the bottom of a recto (right-side) page to create a smooth transition to the next chapter’s opening spread.
