I was looking at my copies of the New English Bible (NEB) and the Revised Standard Version (RSV) yesterday. [As an aside, the RSV is the parent of the ESV]. I noticed similar cross patterns on both covers, pictured shakily below.
Both were published in the late 60’s / early 70’s – the versions I have that is. And as I looked at the credits, I noticed a reason for the similarity – both jackets were designed by Muriel Nasser. I looked high and low for information about her, and I can find a lot of books she designed in the last century, but nothing much about her personally.
