You never know.

Alvin Lustig, who was perhaps the greatest US graphic designer next to Paul
Rand, started losing his vision in the last years of his life, as a result
of his diabetes. By October 1954, he was completely blind. He continued to
teach and do graphic design work; his wife, Elaine, would execute the
graphic design work according to his dictates. Lustig died in December 1955,
at age 40. After his death Elaine Lustig (later Elaine Lustig Cohen) became
a talented graphic designer herself and has more recently co-authored some
books on modernist graphic design.

I'm surprised that no one has yet done a full-length biography or monograph
on Alvin Lustig.
