Design: As with most children's records, the illustration has much more prominence than the label name. Great care has been taken in the charming label design, printed in a single colour on a gold background, echoing the exquisitely sensitive watercolour illustrations accompanying the records (album cover shown below).

History: Label scan courtesy of collector Georg Richter of Germany, who writes: "This special album, issued in 1940, consisted of a set of five records with text from author Jan Karafiąt about 'Broucci,' a young boy in a miniature land."
