Steinweiss dies at 94

A comment from Cover Art = Log 24 (thanks!) has informed me that Alex Steinweiss died this week at age 94. Hi wife Blanche died a year ago, according to the New York Times.

I spoke to him once whenn he was about to turn 80 and was worried about heart surgery. He himself told me he designed around 2500 record covers. Not only was he the best, he was also the most prolific. He designed covers for 35 years, 1939 to 1974.

Allow me to pray that all the pleasure his work brought people over the years should be to the merit of his soul in its new home.

– Ken
