Cover of the month

An oldie but a goodie, via Hollyhocks and Tulips. This is the cover of a booklet titled Opportunities in Gas Processing and the illustration is by Jerome Gould. He was an Australian, or at least worked in Oz, but that’s all I know about him. Apart from his Farmer’s Union milk and dairy packaging from the 1980s, via Nightjar:

For anyone interested in Australian graphic design, there’s a good archive at Re:collection, a visual blog by Dominic Hofstede. It’s wide-ranging – as far back as the 1940s – and just one person’s selection but very much worth a browse. It even includes Noel Crombie’s cover of the Split Enz album True Colours. Australian-ish, that one.
