कलंकिनी Kalankini, by Manmohan Kumar, 1965.

I love the graphic design of this cover – geometric shapes, positive/negative relationships, textures… very cool. Big fan of the lettering, too. Some interesting contrast – some strokes getting quite thick, with little pointy curls, but also some blunt wedge-like terminals. The disconnected headline works well, too. I’m a big fan!
