Cover design by George Giusti.
Love when Typography meets Photography. (This is the 1970 printing of the edition started in 1966, so I assume ’66 is when the cover was done.)
Of course I love me some overprinting shapes, but what I really admire about this is the gutsy decision to force the = in there as the Q, even though it really doesn’t work. That said, it does still read.
Designed by husband and wife team (of course!) James and Ruth McCrea. (A new one for the list…)
Another great one from MIT Press. From 1974. No design credits, though from the © page, we know:

Let’s start out the new year with some serious hippie sh*t. (Did I even need to put the year?) Love the overprinting and the funky slab.
