From 1940-1948, my father, H. Lawrence Hoffman, was a prominent and prolific book jacket illustrator for the new medium of mass-market paperback books. He died in 1977 and I only recently became aware of his significant artistic contribution to the developing art form of paperback book covers with each cover a painting unto itself. I curated an exhibit of over 100 paperback book covers in 2015. This sketchbook shows many of the covers from that exhibit. Caroline Hoffman
