Alvin Lustig

As an avid reader I’ve been aware of the work of Alvin Lustig for years without realizing it. For Lustig was one of the world’s finest designers of book covers making the books we love to read items we love to live with to. Not that this was the limit of his talents. He was also a dab hand at architectural design and interiors.

He died tragically young in 1955, at just 40 years old, following a kidney disease associated with his diabetes.
