More about this item
GONE WITH THE WIND facsimile dust jacket for first edition book by Margaret Mitchell Facsimile dust jacket for the first edition of GONE WITH THE WIND, published in 1936 and basis for the film. This is a professionally rendered facsimile dust jacket, not price-clipped, to fit the first edition of this book. The dust jacket is printed on archival paper, with pigment inks and enclosed in a crystal clear Mylar dust jacket protector, trimmed and pre-folded to fit your book. This jacket could also be used for, the second, and third editions and later editions of the book printed by Macmillan Company, but the size will vary on the early printings. Later printings are usually smaller in height. Let me know the HEIGHT of your book if you order this jacket. This first printing jacket is 8-3/4 inches tall, some of the early printings are 8-5/8 inches tall and some are the same size as the first printing. IMPORTANT!!! You can email me if you have doubts about size. I can make the jacket fit your book, just let me know the size. Some of the very early later printings are a little smaller in height... If you have a later printing of the book, and the measurements are similar or not similar, you can email me and I will make the attempt to have the jacket fit your book, which is usually always successful, to customize it for your later printing. This service is at no additional charge. These jackets are NEVER mass produced-and produced one at a time by myself-and are extremely labor intensive to get the colors to match as closely as possible to the original, trim and fit and inspect the final product for flaws in printing. They are done by myself, out of love, for books and classic artwork and to promote the book jackets as works of art. The rear flap of the dust jacket, as shown in the thumbnail photo, is marked "Facsimile Dust Jacket" and with my monogram "JAM" (indicates a quality product from the John Anthony Miller Graphic Studio), and to prevent this being sold as an original jacket. I have done this in a way as to not interfere with the aesthetics of the book jacket art. I am trying to preserve the beauty of the original art, yet not let this be passed off as an original dust jacket, so I am careful where I place my wording. To 'cut out' my monogram and words stating it is facsimile would ruin the jacket. On the reverse of the jacket there is a pencil-signed by the artist, indicating that it is a facsimile dust jacket. My jackets are now being collected by people, so I now sign them in pencil. Miller's jacket work is now being collected own its merit, as people are considering these older dust jackets as works of art, especially when associated older pre-1965 classic works such as this one is.

I have received many positive comments about my work in making and printing these facsimile jackets. Here is one of them: "John's unique artistry was evident as soon as I saw The Great Gatsby dust jacket. Having seen scores of facsimile jackets, John's work is in a completely different league. The rich tonal quality of the colors is breathtaking and the weight of the paper is carefully considered. He satisfied the needs of the most demanding client, even during a personally trying time. I look forward to doing continued business with him in the future and give him my highest recommendation."
