Alan Aldridge at the Design Museum

The Design Museum is showing the first UK retrospective of illustrator and graphic designer, Alan Aldridge "The Man with the Kaleidoscope Eyes" until January 2009.

Aldridge was born in London, but has lived in LA for 25 years. He became huge in the swinging 60’s with his unique style of psychedelic illustration on the Beatles lyric book and iconic album covers for the Rolling Stones, Elton John and The Who. During this time he was also the Art Director at Penguin and is said to have, “breathed fresh life into modern book cover design”.

The exhibition sounds great, “an elaborate display of complete works as well as sketches, notes, letters and other archival material as well as films; bringing to life the exciting career of Alan Aldridge”, and I can't wait to see it, but for anyone that can’t make it you can checkout his work and buy prints here.
