RIP Quentin Fiore (1920 – 2019)

This happened two years ago but I only just found out.

Quentin Fiore was an American graphic designer best-known for The Medium is the Massage: An Inventory of Effects (1967) which he made with Marshall McLuhan, being a rumination on the adagium the medium is the message.
