I had never heard of Ilonka Karasz before reading this great introduction to her work. She was an incredibly talented designer who created some highly mathematical yet beautiful things. Things I wouldn’t mind possessing at all. I always think that creating geometric things is easy, because it’s something I know how to do. But maybe I only know how to do geometric stuff because I don’t know how to create real things. Ilonka Karasz did know how to create real stuff as well. According to the article, she created 186 eye-catching New Yorker covers published between 1925 and 1973. Again a fantastic addition to the wonderful series of Designing Women.
