Sacker's Book Illustrations


Little Puritan Rebel


In addition to her extensive work designing book covers, bookplates, and other types of design, Amy Sacker illustrated a number of books for the L. C. Page and other Boston publishers.


Checklist of Sacker's book illustrations


Several of them come from the Little Puritan series, first published between 1896 and 1905. Here we see two illustrations from   A Little Puritan Rebel (1898, 1909) by Edith Robinson.

One frequently found category in her illustration work is the title page. Her several designs were often repeated on numerous titles. Click here to see examples of this title-page work.
