graphis annual ‘59 part 3

finally got around to scanning some more images so here we present part 3 (see parts1 & 2) of our graphis from years past showcase. this batch is taken mostly from the book jackets and magazine covers sections of the 1958 annual with a few album covers, posters, and even t.v. graphics of the day thrown in. i didn’t include any of the animation plates (sorry ward) because the printing on those pages were off register. this will be the last group from the ‘59 annual. next time we’ll shift to the ‘57. and so without further ado…
