Alvin Lustig Book Covers

From Men's Vogue (of all places), a slideshow of graphic designer Alvin Lustig's book cover designs for New Directions.

The cover of Federico GarcĂ­a Lorca's collection of three plays was designed for the paperback version; it's one of Lustig's most famous covers and it's still used.

Alvin Lustig died in 1955 at the age of 40. More on Lustig later.

Yeah Crazy right? Men's Vogue? Backtracking to the mag at the newstand I figured out they put up all the Lustigs as a far fetched link from a review of the new all visual James Laughlin bio which looks like its some kind of cool scrapbook format like Dan Nadel's Wilco book. Must be some frustrated ex-Print magazine workers at Conde Nast or something. They've got more art and architecture than manpurses and wingtips.
