CBI Crusaders (Canada) / c. 1954

Design: Minimal typographic styling. Likely typeset on an Intertype or Linotype hot-metal slug-casting machine (which were mainly intended for text setting and carried little in the way of display fonts). The lines do not appear to be level horizontally, so the proofs may have been pasted up and printed by the litho process.

History: Presumably a Christian ministry, judging by the content of the record, and perhaps sold or distributed at religious gatherings, since there is no attempt at point-of-sale visual appeal. Label scan courtesy of disc jockey John Worthington of CKUA radio network, Alberta, Canada.
