Description:

Alvin Lustig's designs for office and domestic interiors, furniture, books, magazines, and textiles have a look - George Jetson's living room - that anyone who grew up in the US in the 1950s and 60s will instantly recognize as modern. The Kind Company created this site, a Brooklyn based graphic design firm, out of their sheer admiration for Lustig's designs. The web site currently features more than 425 examples of Lustig's work, which are simply a lot of fun to look at. For example, browse Lustig's book jacket designs for modern literary works, from his first, the 1941 edition of Henry Miller's "Wisdom of the Heart", to his 1944 edition of Gertrude Stein's "Three Lives", up to his 1953 "Selected Poems" by Garcia Lorca. Be sure to stop by the "Architecture and Interiors", to see the low coffee tables, skinny-legged chairs, and pendant and pole lamps.
