Graphic design's loss.

Also dead: designer Gene Grief. He was responsible for the album cover for The Clash's Give 'Em Enough Rope, which the NYTimes obit makes out to be a turning point in punk graphics, favoring found art. I had always thought that The Vibrators' Pure Mania had more to do with this look, but in the end what difference does it make? We'll give it to Grief, as he's gone, and The Vibrators, astonishingly, are still vibrating.
