What could be hipper? Be it 1956, or 2009…
I’m a sucker for halftones overprinted on a solid color.
Nothing special about the layout, but I love the overprinted CMYK Rorschach.
Oh, and the Delta logo is pretty awesome.
Some two-color, overprinty goodness…
Two of my favorite things: arrows and overprinting. Jacket design by Warren Infield.
Second printing, looks like it was designed earlier.

Worth a zoom in (click) to see how they used green as one of the colors to get this odd overprint.
Of course, I love the front of this, geometric shapes, overprinting, oddball colors…
But I also really love these two aspects of the jacket.

2.) They overprinted the green and pink to get a dark brown for this halftone of the author on the flap:
No design credit unfortunately.
Oh ho ho—don’t get me started on the ol’ Weber Thesis. What a controversy!
Anyways, love this truly odd mint green and orange color combo, and the brown resulting from the overprints.
