Scandia (Finland) / 1959

Design: At the centre, a screened-back graphic image of a trumpet emits a full-strength 'sound balloon' containing the reversed-out label name, which appears in lowercase in an 'ultra-fat face' Bodoni italic. Though designed for display use, that style of type seldom appears on record labels, perhaps because of legibility issues. The imprinting is under-strength and badly off-kilter.

History: Unknown (have info? Please send to info.re.78s@shaw.ca). Label scan courtesy of collector Jukka Kettunen of Finland.
