The exceptional Lustigs exhibition that originated at the College of Visual Arts Gallery in Saint Paul, Minnesota, “The Lustigs: A Cover Story,” is now at the AIGA National Headquarters in New York City (at 164 Fifth Avenue). The 500 covers—paperback and hardcover books, magazines, and catalogs—by Alvin Lustig, who died in 1955, and Elaine Lustig Cohen, who carried on her husband’s practice and quickly became an equally accomplished designer, will be on view from today until February 15, 2013. A reception and conversation between me and Elaine will be scheduled for January. Don’t miss it.
