Herb Lubalin was known for lighting typographic fireworks. They weren’t always lighting up the sky through pyrotechnics, but they always illuminated the imagination. On this 4th of July, we present a booklet of doodles based on Lubalin’s swash logo/letterhead, conceived and designed by his colleague Ernie Smith, as an invitation to an exhibition at the Composing Room Gallery as a little reminder of Herb Lubalin Inc. work. Happy holiday.
