Since the opening last week at the Museum of the City of New York—“Everything is Design: The Work of Paul Rand,” curated by Donald Albrecht—there have been a number of tweets of drawings done by Rand from the exhibition.

Sifting through my boxes of Paul Randiania, I found this printed cover for the Wittenborn, Schultz publishing catalog, which Rand also designed. Note how the fluid pencil logo cum monogram for Wittenborn has the same informality as this drawing of unknown purpose.
