Design: The label name of this 6 inch record is based on the book Gulliver's Travels, written by the Irish political satirist Jonathan Swift and first published in 1726 (instantly popular, it has never been out of print since then). 'Lilliput' was the fictional name given to an island visited by Gulliver which was populated by tiny people, and 'Lilliputian' has since become a standard adjective for anything small (though here, the German variant spelling drops the double 'l' to a single letter). Though the lettering style remains the same, the 'h and spinning disc' logo has been dropped because of space considerations.

History: As the previous label. Label scan courtesy of collector Lucyna Lachowicz of Poland.
