Cathy Hull Alastair Allen if [Deutscher Text: Seitc 474] [Texte frangais: page 474] To produce 21 opening illustrations in black and white for the chapteitrf 1 McGraw-Hill book entitled Introduction to Electronic Computers (by GfMor B. Davis) might well seem a slightly chilling assignment to an imag%m designer. Cathy Hull, who put aside her satirical drawings of visual pur ar c non sequitur's in order to do it, herself had the feeling that there werehem restrictions than possibilities in the task. But J. Paul Kirouac, who watxn designer and art director of the work, was sure that under the dull surfte c the assignment there was the glint of gold. And he was to prove right. He gave Cathy Hull a maximum of encouragement and a free hantolm only had to choose her medium and to inject the imagination. Since a ::era approach would in any case have been sterile, she took up her pencil and :gat to compose interpretations, pictures which suggested the essence of wha icl chapter was about. She was so successful that the book won a text-book wet award and was selected by the AIGA - in part, no doubt, on the strenh o: the illustrations - as one of the fifty best books of the year. Such recognition would wing any artist's enthusiasm, and her nex-prie was in any case more invitingsimilar graphic chapter openings were recirec for the McGraw-Hill book The Disorganized Personality. Art director wasgair Paul Kirouac, the designers Joan O'Connor and Howard Leidermaiime author, George W. Kisker, wished to remove the stigma attached to meniili ness, to present personality disturbance not as a disease but as a matter o'-ei tion patterns. The illustrator had to treat a potentially emotional subjecmrar objective way, avoiding literal references which might frighten the readt.aia: trying instead to be educative and instructive. Her illustrations, reproduc t or this spread, attempt in their near-abstract imagery to mirror the gist J the corresponding chapters. Cathy Hull was born in New York in 1946 and studied at the School of Visual Arts. She freelances for The New York Times and her satirical draw ings have appeared in such magazines as Harper's, Newsweek, McCall's and Time Inc. publications.
