It took an influential magazine for interior designers, architects and industrial designers called Interiors to produce some of the most startlingly well conceived covers of the early to mid-1950s. Art directed by notable architect Romaldo Giurgola and Roberto Mango, with publisher Charles E. Whitney and editor Olga Gueft, Interiors was a showcase for some of the most intense moderns of the era, from Bruno Munari and Xanti Schwanski to Rudy DeHarak and Andy Warhol.
For your pure enjoyment, here are some covers that continue to strike my eyes.
