Book Cover, Jazz Cleopatra, 1989
Graphic designer Carin Goldberg has created hundreds of innovative book cover designs, including this cover for the first edition of Jazz Cleopatra, a biography of Jazz Age icon Josephine Baker. Goldberg reproduces George Hoyningen-Huene’s famous portrait of Baker, portraying her as a dramatically lit statuesque nude. Channeling the style of the period, Goldberg’s stylized block lettering recalls the geometric forms of Art Deco and the New Typography of the late 1920s.
