Radio Artist Records (U.S.A.) / 1949

Design: Electrical waves crackle forth from a microphone (perhaps not an accurate picture of radio transmission, but providing a dramatic visual effect). The long label name is made as large as possible by way of a super-condensed 'modern' typeface called Arsis (designed in Holland in 1937), with a line of script called Coronet Bold (also designed in 1937, in the U.S.A.) beneath it. The border travelling around the lower segment is cleverly made to connect with the radio waves. The simple black and white colour combination makes for high contrast.

History: Unknown (have info? Please send to info.re.78s@shaw.ca). Label scan courtesy of collector Kjell Thorsen of Norway.
