S. Neil Fujita

S. Neil Fujita, the graphic designer whose work was featured on album covers for Dave Brubeck's Time Out, Miles Davis' Round About Midnight, and Charles Mingus' Mingus Ah Um, passed away last weekend. The New York Times has a lengthy obituary. Fujita also designed book jackets for The Godfather, In Cold Blood, and many others. Though you may not have heard of him, you are undoubtedly familiar with his work.

That is a great loss to the design world. I haven't heard of him until this post but the album covers you mentioned are all some of my favorites.
