Emanuel Haldeman-Julius : Pocket Series and the Little Blue Books

Front Wrapper Design Style: "Large Title"

While sharing much in common with the Late Conventional wrapper design, the sheer size of the Book Title deviates from established conventions grossly enough to warrant definition as its own wrapper style. Further, note that the wrapper omits any Attribution Statement, even when the contained work is by a single author. It is unlikely that this wrapper design pre-dates 1960, and copies of booklets in these wrappers are known to have been part of physical inventory right up until the plant was destroyed by fire in 1978.
