Jim Flora magazine illustrations, 1965

These images ran in the October 5th, 1965 issue of Look Magazine.

Jim Flora's illustrations complemented 'The Big Zoning Battle', an article about the problems of rampant real estate development in America.

In recent years it's been nice to see more of Flora's different styles of artwork gathered together for us all to appreciate, rather than having to rely on the hope of tracking down his mid-century album cover art in used record bins, or stumbling across the occasional book or magazine illustration.

This crop of images has its charm, but it pales in comparison to the flights of imagination and fluid style exhibited in so much of his other work.

If you don't know Flora, for starters be sure to check out Jim Flora.Com and the The Jim Flora Blog!
