PathÚ (Czechoslovakia) / c. 1929

back next

Design: A radical redesign, with the Pathe rooster and the Pathe logo being absent. The typography is a 'dog's breakfast' of styles and sizes, including Victorian-era Latin, sans serif and serif typefaces.

History: Label scan courtesy of collector Gabriel G÷ssel of Czechoslovakia, who writes: "Aside from ethnic recordings, Pathe was asked also to record also voices of important persons of Czechoslovakian cultural and political life. This particular record presents monologues by a famous Czech actress fromáthe National Theatre in Prague."
