Alvin Lustig book jacket design, 1946. "Confessions of Zeno" by Italo Svevo, New Directions. Alvin Lustig (1915-1955) was a design generalist who believed in the "power of design when applied to all aspects of life." His work spans industrial, graphic, and interior design, but he is perhaps most well known for his book jackets. In the 1940s, his work was considered radical. His precision, attention to detail, grid awareness and penchant for problem solving led Lustig's legacy.
