Transforming the Ordinary celebrates the women who designed book covers from the late nineteenth to the early twentieth centuries, when the art of book cover design was at its peak and women dominated the field.  The design was a direct and palpable reflection of the book’s contents, the author’s talents, and the cover designer’s aesthetic.
