I'm in love. Thanks for sharing! Absolutely beautiful. I have seen her monogram, the "interlocked" one before, so I've admired one of her illustrations at one time or another. I can say I don't remember her being mentioned in the Little, Brown & Co. centennial history I have (not suprised. It's mostly name dropping authors and the company's various addresses). Are you connected with the project on the website?

Hi, all! It's actually my site, part of the Library's site at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, where I work. I have been hunting for Sacker designs for several years, but there may still be many more out there. If anyone sees one not listed on

http://library.uncg.edu/depts/ref/staff/mark/documents/sackermaster.htm

please let me know! Thanks!

Thanks for the update! The new site is great.

I love those old book designs. It's sad that they've gone away.

Oooh! Just realized that I have one of her books! Louisa May Alcott's Spinning-Wheel Stories.
