ffcover.jpg  Alexander Rodchenko (awesomely spelt Александр Михайлович Родченко, in Russian) was an 20th Century artist, photographer and graphic designer, best known in this country for inspiring the artwork for Franz Ferdinand debut album ‘You Could Have It So Much Better‘ cover (above).  Here’s the original, a portait of Lilya Brik.
