I'm working on a series of book jackets for my Print 1 class and have been looking for style inspirations.

I learned about Alvin Lustig in a 2004 issue of Print Magazine. It was mainly about his interior design but even that intrigued me.

A few days ago, I found 2 old issues of Graphis ('60/'61 & '64), an international journal of visual communication, and came across a few of Alvin Lustig's book designs. I headed to his website and I was really surprised at how thorough the site is! It's absolutely complete and does his beautiful work justice! I was going to take a few screen shots of my favorite pieces but this post would be pages long!

Here's a link to the site instead: Alvin Lustig :)
