Item #25192 Signed First Day Cover. Lester BEALL.

Signed First Day Cover.

Pioneering, prolific and legendary self-taught American graphic designer whose work spans the commercial, editorial corporate identity and advertising art worlds and who incorporated such disparate elements as bold new typefaces, Dada and 19th century American wood types; among his designs is the U.S. 10-cent stamp honoring Andrew Jackson; one authority calls Beall "the conscience of American design," while another maintains he "almost single-handedly launching the Modern movement in American design."
