Herb Lubalin Retrospective #1: Fact
To celebrate this weekend's Herb Lubalin Then and Now
symposium, SPD will be posting a three-day celebration of the magazine cover designs of one of our favorite art directors and typographers. First up is Fact
magazine, first published in 1964 and running for 25 issues. Lubalin
was the art director, and generally hired a different illustrator to do all the art for each issue. It looks like free tickets are still available for this event, at Cooper Union in NYC. The first night features a panel discussion with Louise Fili, Steven Heller, George Lois
, and more.
