Bob Steele’s Century Books
Book and Publication Design
Kelly Design provided art direction, design and production services for this massive 10-volume set of books – each 200 pages in length. Radio Hall of Fame broadcaster Bob Steele (1911-2002) entertained four generations over a 66-year radio and television career on WTIC in Hartford CT.
Bob Steele’s Century is multi-volume collection is taken from Bob’s own archives, as much autobiography as biography drawn from his photos, articles about him, scripts he wrote for his radio programs, jokes he wrote and jokes he stole, hundreds of letters from listeners that he held onto (and, when not flattering to him, shared with his radio audience), the wonderful cartoons he loved to draw, his diaries recording details of his personal life and the epic century into which he broadcast his unique blend of steadiness and unpredictability. Featuring characters, celebrities and sports icons such as Babe Ruth, Joe DiMaggio, Bob Hope and more!
