I WANT MY DADA.
In 1943 Denver born NYC based modernist designer Alvin Lustig heralded the death of painting and art as he knew it. To be replaced by design. A bold statement, and of course, shite. However his book jackets for New Directions classics between 1946-48 were so different, and so new, you maybe can see where he was coming from.
