"Harry "Ward" Ritchie (Los Angeles, California June 15, 1905 - Laguna Beach, California January 24, 1996) was an American printer, book designer, book-collector and writer of around 100 books. He was part of the "Golden Age" of fine printing that took place during the 1920s and 1930s in Southern California. [2] Ritchie was also part of the Artists of the Arroyo Seco community. Ritchie grew up in South Pasadena and attended the Marengo Avenue School, South Pasadena High School, and graduated in 1928 from Occidental College in Northeast Los Angeles. After a brief stint in law school at USC, Ritchie turned his attention to printing, his true passion. He enrolled at Frank Wiggins Trade School (now Los Angeles Trade-Technical College). In 1930, Ritchie apprenticed in Paris with the renowned printer François Louis-Schmied. Returning to South Pasadena, Ritchie co-founded, along with fellow printer Grant Dahlstrom and bookseller Jacob "Jake" Zeitlin, the Rounce & Coffin Club. This club was created as a less formal alternative to the Zamorano Club, where other bibliophiles gathered in Los Angeles. The following year, he established the Ward Ritchie Press, through which he published thousands of books, over 750 designed by himself; his output included works by poets Robinson Jeffers, Carl Sandburg, Archibald MacLeish, Carlyle MacIntyre, librarian Lawrence Clark Powell, novelist Alexandre Dumas, and many others.".

"For many a day the novelists, poets, singers, artists, teachers, critics, and orators even have been busy interpreting that emotionally turbulent section of the United States known as the South. These interpretations and findings have varied and been of every conceivable sort and contradiction, ranging from frothy praise and preoccupation with ancient grandeur and glory down to the most recent backbiting and beratings of the poor one-gallus man and his hound dog." "Clara Ellaline Hope Leighton (sometimes Clare Veronica Hope Leighton) (12 April 1898 - 4 November 1989) was an English/American artist, writer and illustrator, best known for her wood engravings. Clare Leighton was born in London on 12 April 1898, the daughter of Robert Leighton (1858-1934) and Marie Connor Leighton (1865-1941) , both authors...Over the course of a long and prolific career, she wrote and illustrated numerous books praising the virtues of the countryside and the people who worked the land. During the 1920s and 1930s, as the world around her became increasingly technological, industrial, and urban, Leighton portrayed rural working men and women. In the 1950s she created designs for Steuben Glass, Wedgwood plates, several stained glass windows for churches in New England and for the transept windows of Worcester Cathedral, England.".

In the days before history men scratched upon the walls of their caves animal portraits and startlingly lifelike hunting scenes. Later, the Egyptians produced a really systematic means of writing..." ""Probably more than any other designer between 1939 and 1950, Oscar Ogg made book buyers aware of calligraphic jackets. No one before or since has written with more dashing facility … In one decade (before joining Book of the Month Club as executive art director) he produced writing and jackets of such volume and distinction as to be the envy of most other calligraphers. On Oscar’s jackets, the calligraphy was dominant. Like it or not, his work was the standard against which many others were compared ... The integrity of letterforms was rarely if every compromised. Ogg’s early excess of flamboyant ascenders and descending loops was later moderated by maturity and less need to proclaim his dramatic penwork. Publishers used his designs mostly for anticipated bestsellers or well-established reprints … His jackets were simply handsome little posters, with a clear and stylish statement of title and author."
