White Eagle

White Eagle (Poland) / c. 1955

back next

Design: An extreme graphic contrast exists between the engraved, heraldic image of a white eagle, the symbol of Poland first adopted in the 13th century (though here, printed in silver on red, it appears in reverse), and the font used for the label name, which is hand-drawn but based on a font called Futura Black, the original of which was designed in 1928 and based solely on geometric forms such as the circle, the square and the triangle.

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