    Desdemona Solid for the dust jackets of a series of books by British horticulturalist E.A. Bowles (1865–1964), covering the four seasons in three volumes. Originally published in 1914–1915, this edition is a reprint by David & Charles from 1972. While the interior (not shown) is a facsimile of the original, the jacket design uses Face Photosetting’s late-1960s revival of Desdemona, with one word per line. The author’s name is in Berling Italic.
