The Living Symbol cover by Paul Rand

    Newer Older

    A Paul Rand book jacket design.

    The Living Symbol by Gerhard Adler.
    Pantheon Books, 1961. First Edition.

    The book store where I purchased this had several Rand covers from the Bollingen series. The two I bought were in the regular stacks, but a dozen or so more were displayed on a "special" shelf with considerably higher prices. I'm not sure why they were not all together, but I'm glad I was able to walk away with at least a couple at a reasonable price.
