RIP Alex Steinweiss
The inventor of the modern record cover, and a brilliant designer for over 3 decades, designing over 800 album covers. He was a member of the Art Directors Club hall of fame and died last Sunday aged 94. When you read interviews with famous designers from the generations after him, so many of them say that it was album covers that got them into design. So we have a lot to thank Alex Steinweiss for.
Taschen recently published a retrospective of his work, which looks like a lovely book and Il be adding to my mental list of books out recently that Id like. More about it here
