“In the early 1990s, two titans of the artfully cynical and subversive joined forces in an extraordinary collaboration: Legendary cartoonist and album cover artist R. Crumb illustrated two short books by Charles Bukowski, Bring Me Your Love (public library) and There’s No Business (public library). Crumb’s signature underground comix aesthetic and Bukowski’s commentary on contemporary culture and the human condition by way of his familiar tropes — sex, alcohol, the drudgery of work — coalesce into the kind of fit that makes you wonder why it hadn’t happened sooner.”

“Titles designed by Saul Bass”
‘NORTH BY NORTHWEST’ was the second of three title sequences Saul Bass designed for director Alfred Hitchcock.
It’s Saul Bass’s birthday. He would have been 92 today. Celebrate him by taking in some of his wonderful work.
“Google has marked the birthday of Saul Bass with one of the search engine’s most elaborate “doodles” yet – an animated sequence based on his designs for film title credits, film posters and corporate logos.
Bass, who died in 1996, worked with film-makers including Alfred Hitchcock, Billy Wilder, Stanley Kubrick and Martin Scorsese over the course of a 40-year career, approaching his commissions in the spirit of a graphic design problem to be solved.” - Read more at the Guardian.
