Today we say goodbye to the eminent graphic designer, Elaine Lustig Cohen (1927-2016). Her website provides a fitting description:

A high point of book publishing of the 1950s and 60s, Elaine’s typographic, abstract and photographic book jacket designs are a unique style of American modernism characterized by inventiveness and clarity.

Thank you, Elaine, for showing us how to speak visually, boldly, concisely.
