Sometimes I don't know how to draw the line between design that I think is interesting because it is well conceived and executed (good), and that which is interesting because is kitschy, weird or perfectly emblematic of a certain era. In other words, sometimes I'm not sure if I'm appreciating something ironically or not. I'm also not sure that there is a meaningful difference between those two modes of appreciation. In any case, I think that as far as the book covers of novelizations of television shows go, this is probably among the best. Illustration: D. Csanady, published in 1969, Mod Squad background here.
