Harper’s Magazine (October 1966)


Janet Halverson ran with all the big mid-century designers. Her work got plenty of attention, but she, unfortunately, did not. She designed covers and jackets for books written by some of the most important authors of the twentieth century. That and the fact that those covers and jackets are highly regarded by contemporary designers of covers and jacket is, more or less, all that is known about her.

That said, we know she designed approximately fifty-five covers over eight years for Harper’s. Her first was in August of 1960.
