Irving Miller, 11×14“, ca. 1943

One of my favorites showing an anti-aircraft targeted, a navy device surrounding his helmet, with two silhouettes in the background and montage of bombed city in the background. A dramatic design among most of the masterpieces here! Flip up answer lower left. 

Irving Miller was a graphic designer with a rare Futuristic eye. He headed the Office of War Information Graphics Division for a time after replacing Ben Shahn, where Shahn’s dark taste in propaganda creation also created a great deal of tension at the division, which culminated in “fist fights” according to Miller. 

I don’t understand why Irving Miller was not seen as one of the great graphic designers of the 20th century. His taste is easily as distinctive and recognizable as Lester Beall’s. He was an extraordinary designer, somehow lost in the sea of history. Mint.
