Jumbola-Record (Germany) / c. 1908

back next

Design: A disparate collection of elements, with all sorts of curves and angles and geometric and organic shapes, but all of the same line weight, which helps to unify the image.

History: A product of the German Beka company, marketed in England prior to WWI as Jumbo-Record. Scan of sleeve (below, featuring some wood poster type with triangular Latin serifs) courtesy of collector Georg Richter of Germany.
