Author: Colin | Published: 18/5/10

An anthology of Folkways album cover art featuring the work of Ronald Clyne.

Ronald Clyne at Folkways is a 64pp newspaper devoted to designer Ronald Clyne’s record covers for the Folkways label. Clyne is one of the undiscovered talents of 20th century graphic design. He doesn’t appear in the textbooks or literature of graphic design. He is a neglected figure. Until now, that is. Clyne said: ‘A record cover should be seen at a glance. You shouldn’t have to study different sections of it. You should see the total instantly.’
