Gil Funccius

Profile:
Gil Funccius was a Berlin artist, first documented with left-wing underground publications in the mid 1960's. She went on to develop a unique and visionary style of album cover art that graces many albums of the Krautrock era.
Gil Funccius (with 2 c's) is the correct spelling of her name. On a lot of her covers the typographers spelled her name wrongly with one c. Often the credit is just something like "Cover von Gil".

Gil Funccius (with 2 c's) is the correct name for this Berlin artist, best-known for her covers of 1970's Krautrock albums. On a lot of her covers the typographers spelled her name wrongly with one c.
Proof?
Funccius is a fairly common name in Germany, a counterpart of Francis in English.
Funcius doesn't seem to exist, except for some Americans.
Earliest online document of her work is a book cover "Sozialistische Politik" 1. Jahrgang Nr. (1 April 1969) http://www.infopartisan.net/archive/1967/2667117.html
Gil Funccius was still active with a kinetic art exhibition in Berlin's Kunstaffaire Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf in 2010. http://www.berlin.de/ba-charlottenburg-wilmersdorf/org/kunstamt/kunstaffaire.html

p.s. Sometimes she was just credited Gil.
