Typography in Album Artwork: From Groovy Typefaces to Handwritten Calligraphy

I saw the thread pop up again and thought of this article I read a few weeks ago about fonts and typefaces on album covers over the years.

 

Sort of a fan's take... Agree with Bruno Mars, the rest of her good examples are kind of meh. Overall the by-the-decades trends seem to be valid. 
 
Yeah, whoever designed the Bruno Mars cover was making an obvious nod to Saul Bass - good job on that.  Her other favorites aren't that impressive but also the only "12"-record" period she covered is the 1970s, and that's only from 1975 forward, so she didn't really cover much of the period when designers had to cover a physically larger space with design elements and could get more "expressive" with typefaces and lettering.
*All Benguiat on that Harry Truman LP - I think Whole Foods used that typeface for a while.

That's pretty cool, nice graphics. It would be a fun project.  About 900 covers, limited to  Top 25 songs by era.  Hand-written cover lettering is not really as newly popular as she seems to suggest though - pretty much all of the "calligraphy" covers from the 1970s and most of the '80s were handwritten (or hand-lettered), granted they were done by professional calligraphers.

Just great.
Don Drysdale called me one evening. . I met and talked a long time with him. Worked on his house. Got paid. And he signed a few baseballs for me... a week before he died.

It is right up Commander Cody's alley. Jimmy Dean covered it and so did Phil Harris (the voice of Baloo in Jungle Book)

 I came across a single car accident right after it happened one evening in Rancho Mirage sometime around 1975.
My girlfriend, now my wife of 44 years Friday, stopped to see what we could do.
It was a well lubricated Phil Harris. He bumped his head with just a little cut that was bleeding. 
The sheriff showed up quickly and took over.
I'm sure he pegged the breath-a-lizer test.

Apparently they're still active - since 1980 or so.

 
Oh yeah I remember them from some Various Artists records, never had a full album tho. Amazing that they're still at it.
