David Stone Martin's Mid-Century Jazz Prints

Few art forms felt as thoroughly modern at mid-century as jazz. And the graphics that accompanied and adorned those classic albums were often just as experimental and exuberant. Illustrator David Stone Martin was one of those innovators, and on the occasion of his centennial JAZZARTZ Gallery in Laguna Beach, California, has released scores of his cover designs for Billie Holiday, Lester Young, Stan Getz, and others as art prints.

The checkered background mirrors both the squares on the board and the letter tiles. We also get introduced to Myers personality. He clearly has a sense of humor, something we like to know when sending a photographer on a shoot. All in all, this is a successful and clever promotional piece that made us chuckle and drove us right to his website.
