Monday Museum TAKEOVER! Who Is This Graphic Artist?

Hey folks! I'm back and so excited to takeover the Museum again and share some of what we have in Archives and Special Collections over in JD Williams Library! 
This month, I've been busy helping my archives crew set up the new "Faulkner at Random" exhibit in anticipation of The Oxford Conference for the Book!

Known for his preference for spare text and symbolic representation, who was the American graphic artist that produced the dust jacket art for the 1951 first edition of William Faulkner’s Requiem for a Nun?
Have you ever read Requiem for a Nun? Have you seen this dust jacket before? 

Here is a close-up of the original artwork. What does this look like to you?

This year's Oxford Conference for the Book will be Wednesday, March 29th through Friday, March 31st. Click for a complete list of events. 
The conference kicks off with a welcome lunch at Library and Special Collections on March 29th at 11 am, followed by a talk at 11:30am by Jay Slatterfield entitled "Faulkner at Random: Building a House, Building a Brand". 
#JoinUS at the Museum on March 30th at 1:30pm when special curators will lead a talk related to our newest exhibit "Lasting Impressions: Restoring Kate Freeman Clark." Hope to see everyone there!
