Details

In the 1940s and '50s, James (Jim) Flora designed dozens of diabolic cover illustrations, many for Columbia and RCA Victor jazz artists. His designs pulsed with angular hepcats bearing funnel-tapered noses and shark-fin chins, that fingered cockeyed pianos and honked lollipop-hued horns.

This volume encapsulates Flora's life with a biographical profile, interviews, photos, autobiographical reminiscences, and tributes from those who knew Jim and/or were influenced by his work.
