Eclipse 3

Eclipse (U.K.) / c. 1932

Design: A custom label design for a series on astrological forecasting, this one referencing the month of June (though two 'signs' overlap the month: Gemini, the twins, May 21 to June 20, and Cancer, the crab, June 21 to July 22). The information is tightly-packed on this small-size label, with a mish-mash of font styles, but the arrangement works efficiently enough, the many stars lending a decorative quality.

History: Launched in 1930 and marketed through F.W. Woolworth's stores, Eclipse lasted until 1935. Label scan courtesy of collector John Bruninx of Belgium.
