Alan Aldridge Design Museum

I recently visited the Alan Aldridge exhibition at the Design Museum and I loved it. If I'm completely honest I wasn't so familiar with his name before but when I saw his work I was blown away. The exhibition was called the man with the kaleidoscope eyes, during the 1960's-70s Aldridge was dubbed the graphic entertainer Illustrating everything from Beatles song books to childrens books and album covers for the Who and Elton John. He was an Art Director at Penguin books  and illustrated the muched loved The Butterfly Ball, part of the exhibiton was a room of full sized illustrations from the book. Sadly it's finished now but I've posted some of the sneaky photo's I took.
