Another difficult to find Alvin Lustig design came in last week  one you dont see discussed too often. Similar in approach to the photographic collaborations he was making for the New Directions Modern Reader Series from a few years earlier and also reminiscent of Elaine Lustig Cohens photographic covers for Meridian Books which would follow in the late 1950s.  The Treasures of Darkness by Cornelia Jessey. Noonday Press 1953. Dust jacket design by Alvin Lustig.  #AlvinLustig #Noonday… Book Covers, Darkness, 1950s, Editorial, Graphic Design, Jacket, Modern, Books, Instagram

The original design (left) was signed as Alvins work as was their custom just prior to his passing away. But ten years and ten printings later (right 1965) Alvins signature remains although his… Playwright, Book Publishing, Cover Design, No Response, Acting, Typography, The Originals, Blind, Books
