Here’s another great one by Mr. Kuhlman, from 1959. I’m sure I’ve got more in here somewhere…

50s book covers, 60s graphic design, sixties graphics, fifties abstract covers, psychoanalysis and contemporary thought, john d. sutherland, designed by roy kuhlman

Present Past Past Present, 1971

No design credit. But it’s Grove Press/Evergreen, so it might be Roy again.

Yet another great Roy Kuhlman design. Though this one’s a bit different for him.

St. Petersberg, 1959

No credit, but it’s Evergreen, so possibly a Roy Kuhlman production?

Another appearance by our friend Roy Kuhlman.

The Balcony, 1958

Was thinking I probably had another Roy Kuhlman design laying around here somewhere. Lo and behold: this one just one color. I guess that’s a railing?

Krapp’s Last Tape, 1960

Boy, Roy Kuhlman sure was having fun over there at Evergreen…

Also, I love finding hidden little treats from the past, like someone’s addition to the half title here…

Pudd’nhead Wilson, 1955

This is the 8th printing of this, but I imagine it’s the same cover as ’55. Another nice one from Evergreen/Grove, and quite possibly our pal Roy


One of my favorite finds in awhile. So, no surprise that it’s a Roy Kuhlman joint. I love that he integrated the boilerplate Evergreen stuff into the graphic.

The Third Rose, 1961

Yet another gem by our old pal Roy Kuhlman. I like the subtle overprinting of those crisp lines on the photogram-type image.
