This one’s been on my Holy Grail list for a long, long time: the February 1942 issue of Arts & Architecture—the first to feature #AlvinLustig’s famous logo and redesign and also the first to feature a Lustig cover (one of only three that he produced for A&A). The most amazing thing about Lustig’s work here is that the look of the magazine remained pretty much unchanged for the next quarter century—a testament to the durability of a design that felt as current when the publication shuttered in 1967 as it did during World War II.
