Janet Halverson Book Covers


Great book covers that Jane from Lox Papers put together. They’re all by designer Janet Halverson whose work graced many a tome from the 70s-90s.

Janet Halverson was one of the best book cover designers. I have a group of books she did for Schoken books in 60s and 70s, all excellent designs.
Does anyone know her bio? Thanks.

She also designed the covers for William Gaddis’s first two novels, “The Recognitions” (1955) and “J R” (1975), both of which he loved.
