    The Forest People is an ethnographic study of the Mbuti pygmies in the African Congo region, authored by the British-American anthropologist Colin M. Turnbull (1924–1994). First published by Simon and Schuster in 1961, this is the paperback edition, issued in 1962 in their Touchstone imprint. The cover was designed by John and Mary Condon, using tightly spaced Akzidenz-Grotesk against a posterized photograph printed in green and black.
