Margaret Armstrong Decorated Bindings Collection E-mail

Margaret Armstrong is among a number of important woman cover designers, beginning her work in the late 1880s. She began her career at A.C. McClurg and then went on to other publishers, primarily Scribner's, for whom she designed half of her total output of about 270 books. Armstrong also specialized in designing many of the works of a few authors including Myrtle Reed, Henry Van Dyke, Paul Bourget, and Paul Laurence Dunbar.

Armstrong's cover designs reflect her interest in nature, employing plant, vine, and flower themes. She utilized bold and strikingly colored inks and book cloths, and often designated that gold-stamped areas be both glossy and matte to heighten the play of light and create more visual interest. Her use of slightly asymmetrical designs, however, set hers apart from many of her contemporaries and from the prevailing style based on art nouveau or Jugendstil.

From 1913 on, Armstrong took on fewer commissions in order to concentrate on her own drawings and writings. Her designs for particular authors proved so successful, however, that publishers, particularly Scribner's, engaged "imitators" to ensure that books retained her distinctive look. Gullans noted that before 1895, she "never signed a binding, and not always after that." An example of an unsigned design by her created after 1895 is Hubert H. Bancroft's The New Pacific (Bancroft Co., 1900), attributed to Armstrong by Gullans (1968).

114. McCutcheon, George Barr. The Day of the Dog. Decorations by Margaret and Helen Maitland Armstrong. New York: Dodd Mead, 1904. Two copies: White, yellow, and black on red, vertically ribbed cloth, a bulldog head with cupid wings in the central, heart shaped panel. And: Pale yellow, light green,and gold on dark green, vertically ribbed cloth; the words, "A Love Story," replacing the bulldog in the central panel. We believe the second binding to be partly by some other hand, since the new lettering is not authentic. It is probable that the dog led readers to believe that the novelette was a dog story rather than a love story. Both bindings occur with both states of the decorations, i.e., before and after the correction of "Cave Canum" to "Cave Canem" on p.6, and before and after the replacement of the drawing on p.XX with an ornament. The colored endpapers are signed "H.M.A.,"and the title page is signed, "M.A." The decorations are the mixed responsibility of the two. GE156.
