John Steinbeck California Field Set

This set of John Steinbeck’s works is fitting for the times in which he wrote and the issues his narratives handled. Our custom design, featuring a neutral color palette and an overall minimalist aesthetic, mirrors the moods of the post-Depression and WWII eras, periods that tested the strength of the American people. The jackets illustrate a Californian field, a landscape that serves as a setting in several of Steinbeck’s novels (he was a native of the state). Bring the powerful stories of one of the most influential writers of the 20th century to your shelf with this gorgeous set and experience words that eloquently capture American life during critical moments in the country’s history.
