From the early 1970s to the early 1980s, former Push Pin designer and illustrator John Alcorn created a truly astounding number of gorgeous book jackets for Rizzoli, widely varying in style. We first discovered them via a low-res gallery on his website. (He died in 1992. The site is run by his son, Stephen.)
