Fact magazine, designed by Herb Lubalin

Fact magazine, designed by Herb Lubalin For all those excited by the opening of the Lubalin Now show at the Cooper Union Herb Lubalin Study Center of Design and Typography, we've got a collection of covers from Fact magazine, which Lubalin art directed from 1965-1967. You can see 14 of the 22 covers that Lubalin designed here. Fact was a journal of politics and journalism, printed all in black and white. Each issue featured the work of a single illustrator, and the covers bore the signature Lubalin illustrative typographic style, oftentimes with little or no imagery. While Lubalin's work on Eros and Avant Garde is much better-known, his work on the Fact covers is much stronger typographically and bears his signature style. Fans of Lubalin and his style of typographic design will love the directness and simplicity of the Fact covers.

    Truly. STUNNING. Every single example shown (of course including the work from Avant Garde, Eros, etc) is truly spectacular.

    Thank you for sharing this wonderful work!
