Journal of Organic Architecture and Design, 2017 First edition, 39 pp., 8 1/2" X 11" Softcover
For three months at the end of 1935, Alvin Lustig studied at Taliesin near Spring Green, Wisconsin. Disillusioned by the atmosphere at Taliesin and unable to assimilate, Lustig soon left. However, he never lost his admiration for Frank Lloyd Wright and his career and work as a trailblazing modern graphic designer was very much influenced by his mentor. Sadly, he died at the age of 45 in 1955. This issue explores his relationship with Wright and features a selection of Lustig's early graphic work created during the first period of his short, but distinguished career.
