Jacqueline S. Casey

Jacqueline Casey (1927-1992) was the foremost US practitioner of the International Style, whilst staying true to its fundamentals, she infused it with a human, flexible sensibility. She was internationally recognized for her elegant posters for the MIT. A retrospective of this work called "Posters: Jacqueline S. Casey, Thirty Years of Design at MIT" was published in 1992 and is now extremlely difficult to get hold of. Take a look at this rare tome at designers-books. Examples of her work have been acquired for permanent collection by the Museum of Modern Art, New York, the Cooper-Hewitt Museum, New York, the USIA, and the Library of Congress. It was her wish that her fantastic posters would be donated to the RIT library.
