  1. I’ve loved the California Design book cover by Wendy Kaplan. Now I know where it came from.

  2. Yep! Our entry for California Design is linked right there in the text above.

  3. This is really great!

  4. We, too, were inspired by the California Design cover, and we featured the Sinatra cover in our book Designed for Hi-Fi Living: The Vinyl LP in Midcentury America, also published by MIT Press.
