The University of Otago has an informative online exhibition, STRAIGHT JACKETS: The Art of the Book Jacket

This exhibition offers an overview of the early history of the book jacket. It also highlights the design and artistic aspects of book jacket production, and importantly, raises the viewer’s consciousness on what is now considered an integral component of the book. It is no longer ephemeral; long live the book jacket.
