This is a very rare record cover designed by Alvin Lustig that I haven’t seen around that much. It’s not in the book, nor the site at this time. I really love his geometric line explorations and this one is certainly one of my favorites of his. It is an honor for me to share it with all of you.
I am very excited to finally post this cover and I am happy to say that, as I am typing this, this particular record among a few others is being shipped to Minneapolis for the exhibit titled “The Lustigs: A Cover Story” curated by Michael Skjei at the College of Visual Arts Gallery. The exhibition will be up from September 19 through October 21, 2012 with Steven Heller (Author of Born Modern: The Life and Design of Alvin Lustig) as a guest Lecturer and a conversation with the wonderful Elaine Lustig Cohen.

So if you are in the area make sure you don’t miss this event as – from what I’ve heard from Michael – it will probably be one of the most complete exhibits of the work of the Lustigs you’ll ever see. Enjoy!
