Salabert (France) / 1933

back next

Design: A very dynamic label with strong graphics. The label name has been simplified from the earlier version, the word 'Francis' having been dropped. The red, white and blue panel (which emphasizes the label's French origin) appears out of a dark background, rather like a car's windscreen being cleared by its window-wipers. The wavy fork-tailed banner enclosing the lower segment effectively ties the whole design together.

History: Francis Salabert, a French music publishing house, was founded in the late 19th century. Label scan courtesy of collector Marco Gialdroni of Italy.
