Published in conjunction with The Composing Room, PM (later named AD) promoted many young, aspiring designers. Influenced by the European avant-garde, this visually energetic cover is a remarkable example of Beall’s advanced knowledge of scale, contrast and the ability to mix type styles. This issue includes a 16-page article (designed and illustrated by Beall) devoted to his career.
