…magazine cover by Saul Steinberg (1950’s)…

it’s unusual to see Steinberg be so graphic, but it works great here. I love the lettering shifting direction to echo the drawing: it’s clear he thought this through.

Jesse Jacobs is wonderful and Annie/Koyama press is bringing out a new book by him… Looks very promising.

I got this zine a little while ago in Melbourne and briefly fan girled over Gemma, who is a delightful creative beautiful human. Bless a power girl.
