Frank McIntosh designed many striking, colorful covers for Asia magazine which show the influence of the prevailing Art Deco style. McIntosh was born and raised in Portland, Oregon, before moving to San Francisco to study art, where he graduated from the California School of Fine Arts and had a studio in 1923-24. He studied in New York with theatrical and industrial designer Norman Bel Geddes for a year, but then turned to illustration with a long run of designs for Asia magazine. By the early 1930s, he had moved to Los Angeles, where he was on the faculty at the Chouinard Art Institute. In the early 1960s, he had a gallery in Los Angeles dealing in Oriental paintings and accessories. He died in Santa Cruz, California.
