The writings of Martin Buber. New York : Meridian Books, 1956

“Elaine's sense of design was usually direct. She resisted using a specific format and never adopted a particular style. She also used the same approach for most of her design work, whether it entailed creating a catalogue for an art exhibit or designing the cover of a book for Meridian. Through the use of visual form, Elaine tried to distill the essence of the content. In some cases she generated compositions using abstracts forms and type, while at other times she produced photographic compositions.”
