Herald Record

Herald Record (U.K.) / 1955

back next

Design: The feminine-looking herald seems to be treating his task with casual indifference, while the supposed lion rampant on his surcoat looks more like a domestic cat about to climb a curtain. The area of fringed fabric hanging down from the trumpet could have carried the letters 'HR' in bold, decorative Gothic caps rather than appearing blank. The label name lettering is weak and tentatively placed; overall, the design is lacking the strong heraldic graphic imagery and symbolism the label name calls for, and the light blue on white colour combination does nothing to add strength.

History: Unknown (have info? Please send to info.re.78s@shaw.ca). Label scan courtesy of collector Bill Dean-Myatt of the U.K.
