Come home to jazz / About U.S. / The Composing Room / 1960

Come home to jazz was the first of four booklets published by the Composing Room in conjunction with the German print/graphics magazine Der Druckspiegel in 1960. The booklet was designed by the great Herb Lubalin and a spread or two is frequently shown in books and magazines that feature his work. Now you can see the complete thing. 
   I always liked his brilliant typography in this booklet and the way he used line art as a very strong graphic element.  Years later the artwork was featured in the March 1978 issue of U&LC which I've placed below the oroginal.   Have a look at the August 19 Post for the three other booklets in this Composing Room series of experimental typography.
