Hi Fi sticker affixed to the front, as issued.

About Rudolph de Harak:
Rudolph de Harak's (1924-2002) early career was profoundly influenced by a lecture given by Gyorgy Kepes in the 1940s. This single formative moment drove de Harak, along with Alvin Lustig, Saul Bass, and Lou Danziger to form the Los Angeles Society for Contemporary Designers. De Harak went on to create hundreds of book jackets, record covers and posters in a vibrant Modernist style using neutral type to anchor his designs. Also an educator, de Harak taught for several decades at Cooper Union, and was a visiting scholar at Yale, Alfred University, Parsons, and the Pratt Institute among other schools. In his sixties, de Harak as many other designers of his era turned to abstract art as an outlet for creativity without the limitations and strains of the corporate design world. De Harak is a member of the 1989 Art Directors Club Hall of Fame, and received the AIGA Medal in 1992.

Please Note:
