Alan Fletcher (1931-2006)

Obituaries have appeared in The Times, The Independent and The Guardian for Alan Fletcher, a pioneering graphic designer, whose career included producing covers for Penguin Books.

Update: Another obituary appears in the Daily Telegraph.

(* Also in the news in the past couple of days, the death of Sir Malcolm Arnold. Lots of praise for his wonderful musical scores on films like The Bridge on the River Kwai, Whistle Down the Wind and The Inn of the Sixth Happiness. He also wrote a ballet version of Sweeney Todd... but to me he'll always be the composer of the St. Trinians' School Song.)
