Ronald Clyne (1925-2006) was a freelance graphic artist who worked with various New York publishing houses producing book jacket designs. Between 1951 and 1981, alongside this ongoing work, he designed over 500 LP covers for Folkways Records, from some 2000 records released during the three-decade lifetime of this successful highly independent company. This exhibition highlights the significance of Clyne's distinctive contribution to American modernist graphic design and cultural history.
