img778 img779Paul Hogarth (1917-2001) British graphic designer and print maker is worth a tribute. An extensive biography shows us how much quality literature he illustrated during his life time.

Respected by many on the left as a hardcore Marxist who stood for what he believed in, so to speak. He fought in the Spanish Civil War against Franco’s Fascist Regime. Apparently his left leanings never left him, but they were no impediment for a successful career. For a good look at some nice older Penguin covers visit this gallery.
