Cipe Pineles was an inspirational graphic designer as well as art director back in the 50's when the field was predominantly dominated by men. She was a friend to many illustrators as well as photographers finding work to be published. I have always admired the work of many graphic designers as they see things in a pared down way. It is about the type but it is also about the story and discovering the medium that will illustrate or photograph the images for that story or cover.
Cipe was austrian and she loved the challenge of using new mediums to portray the story or the cover. I can only imagine that Cipe must have been in the middle of making a charming potato salad.
