Lois Mailou Jones Books

The Beinecke Library has an outstanding collection of books illustrated by African American artist Lois Mailou Jones. The collection includes the many books for which Jones is well known as well as several works for which she is very likely the (uncredited) illustrator. Works about Jones, exhibition catalogs, and ephemeral publications are also present. Titles include: Great American Negroes in Verse,  Word Pictures of Great Negroes, Their Eyes Were Watching God (with cover design by LMJ),  Reflective Moments, Picture-Poetry Book, Negro Art, Music, and Rhyme,  Poems of Leopold Sedar Senghor (with silkscreen prints by LMJ), and many others.

All titles and related materials can be located by searching Orbis, Yale Library's Catalog for book.

Additional information about Lois Mailou Jones is available from the Loïs Mailou Jones Pierre-Noël Trust.
