On Records

I came across this little set of books today, the covers were so striking I thought I should share them.

They were published by Four Corners Press in 1942, each volume contains a short biography as well as a listing of the current recordings of each of the composers.

Love those great covers!

Those are BEAUTIFUL! Is the cover artist mentioned in any of the volumes? And, what are they going for? Seems like some very time-specific and esoteric information. Thanks.

Randular, as is too often the case, the artist is not mentioned.

As is happens, I decided to put them up on bookperdiem yesterday:
