Book, The Week-End Book, a Sociable Anthology
Nonesuch Press was founded in 1923 to apply the newest mechanical methods of production to fine book publishing. The founders, Francis Meynell, Vera Mendel, and David Garnett, engaged contemporary artists to update historical and contemporary texts. These affordable deluxe editions were important commissions for both Dorn and Kauffer. The Week-End Book was a best-selling compilation of fiction and nonfiction features, games, poetry, recipes, and other entertainments for readers’ weekends away.
