I’ve now completely finished my 5000 word dissertation! Printed and bound too (here it is) ready to hand in monday morning! But anyway I’ll keep posting some of the designers and illustrators I’ve been researching, because I said I’d have a Mid-Century Modern themed week.

Book illustrations by Abner Graboff, seems he mainly illustrated for books but he also did some record covers too. The illustrator Ward Jenkins on his blog Ward-O-Matic had a post about Abner Graboff which he then followed up by interviewing his son; Jon Graboff in two parts which you can read here and here, very interesting stuff! Ward also has a flickr set full of work by Graboff.

You can see all my dissertation research images, with sources, at the blog I created especially; http://midcenturymoderndesign.tumblr.com/
