Seamarks cover by Paul Rand

A Paul Rand paperback book cover design.


Seamarks by St.-John Perse.

Harper & Brothers, 1961.


This is a later edition of the Bollingen hard cover of the same title. The cover typography has changed from the original, but it still lists Rand as the designer. It is unclear if Rand set the new typography or if this was done by the art department at Harper & Brothers.


Part of a big find this afternoon of several early Alvin Lustig covers, as well as a couple from Elaine Lustig and Paul Rand.
