Book Obsession: Martha Graham by Merle Armitage

I came across the beautiful typography and design of this book about modern dance pioneer Martha Graham via Amass Blog's feature. Author and designer Merle Armitage (who was also an engineer, set designer, gourmet, art collector) said he often wrote books only so he could design them.  Designed in the 1930's, it's amazing how aesthetically appealing the book still is today. I definitely need to check out his other work.
