Selected by Helen Brandshaft, edited by David Pankow
Ismar David (1910–1996), an artist of extraordinary range and ability, mastered a variety of media during the course of his long career in Berlin, Jerusalem, and New York. In tribute to his achievements, RIT Cary Graphic Arts Press has now published The Work of Ismar David
— the first comprehensive volume on the designer’s oeuvre — that includes vivid reproductions of his book and type design, illustration, calligraphy, and architectural adornment. Content for the book was selected from the extensive Ismar David Archive, held in the Melbert B. Cary, Jr. Graphic Arts Collection at Rochester Institute of Technology.
