George Giusti (b.1909 - d.1990) was a graphic designer trained in Zürich, Switzerland and who's images graced the covers Time, Fortune, and Holiday magazines. The A.R.P. (Air Raid Protection) referred to a division of the U.S. Office of Civilian Defense that established local councils who oversaw monitoring of air raids initially in the first world war but significantly so in World War II during the Blitz of 1940. A.R.P. units were responsible for sounding sirens in advance of bombings and following up bombed areas with a sweep to help civilians and survey damages.
