EXCLUSIVE: Herb Lubalin Archives at Cooper Union

Hopefully everyone who reads this blog saw fellow designer Justin Kay's thorough documentation of the incredible Herb Lubalin Archives at Cooper Union in NYC. If you haven't, I can't recommend it enough. Justin spent several hours sifting through posters, books, and even original sketches from the man who I consider to be the greatest contemporary graphic designer and typographer.

He was kind enough to save a few photographs for this exclusive post on So Much Pileup, so make sure to visit his site and leave a comment here thanking him!

I could stare at this post all day, look at that lowercase g, whoa. Thanks Justin you're like Moses coming down the mountain with commandments.

g - that's Lubalin's own Avant Garde (also featured in the orange alphabet design above it)

great design is timeless...i looked at Lubalins work in awe back in the 70s when i was first starting out in design. 30 years later, it still just amazes me....
