Is it Olle Eksell by chance? A friend of mine was just showing me one of his books the other day. Lots of Bodoni with Paul Rand-ish playfulness.
Not Olle Eksell. Good guess though!
How about Elaine Lustig
No to Elaine Lustig.Though it is a woman.
OK. You can cheat. but you still won't get it.
Neither Anne Rand nor Ayn Rand. This will take some digging.
After spending far too long on google, I've determined this challenge impossible.
Sorry. No correct answers yet. This is indeed difficult. It is someone I do not know much about. But having seen more of her work, I'd like to know more. Let's see. She did a lot of work in the 60s and 70s including some magazine covers for a left of center publication.
Not Cipe Pineles.
Now posting another cover by this person.
Is it Ruth Ansel?
Not Ruth Ansel.
She also did a bunch of Maya Angelou covers.

Ding! Ding! Ding! We have a winner!. Janet Halverson it is. I do not know much about her but she did produce a lot of covers and seems to be a link between 60s/Pushpin/C&G and 70s/Paul Bacon. She also did a ton of Harper's covers in the 1960s. Here's a link to some more work: http://bit.ly/fqjGRmAnyone know anything else about her? Congrats MarcoMan.
