Graphic Pattern from Fred Usher

1029
"Lustig often sketched patterns evocative of African artifacts for his textile designs, but this bit of “Lustigiana” never made it beyond his studio wall. It survives because fellow designer Usher rescued it from the trash, not knowing (then or now) what the pattern might have been intended for"—Louise Sandhaus, Earthquakes, Mudslides, Fires & Riots: California and Graphic Design, 1936-1986, pp. 54
