Lowell Thing, author of “Cover Treasure – The Life and Art of Margaret Armstrong,” describes how, beginning on the lawn of a library book sale, he began to discover and collect books from the “Golden Age” of American trade publishers’ decorated cloth bindings (1890-1915), especially those of one of its best-known artists. Over the next forty years, he was able to assemble almost all of Margaret Armstrong’s known designs and some that were unknown by the artist’s first discoverers, Charles Gullans and John Espey. In this talk, Lowell Thing shows highlights of his collection as well as previously unpublished photos of the artist and her family.
