Designer: Seymour Chwast

"The Basic Handyman's Book"
by George Daniels.
Harper & Row, 1966.
5.75" x 8.5"
179 pages.

"A guide for the unhandy handyman: how to cope with a leaky faucet, a stuck door, hanging a picture and dozens of other simple home improvements."

An nice example of Chwast's work, using a typical illustrative "Chwast-ism": the human figure with a non-human head. A nice unclipped example, illustrated in black & white by the author. Some edge wear and a small tear to the top edge of the jacket. Very clean interior.

His award-winning design and illustrative style is known for referencing culture, and was inspired early on by the work of Ben Shahn, Georg Grosz, Georges Rouault and Honoré Daumier.
