Steinweiss Ravel Sheherazade 1950


The third Steinweiss design for anything related to Scheherazade is this cover for Jennie Tourel singing Ravel’s Sheherazade, and Mussorgsky songs. 1950. I also show a Columbia sampler album from the early 1950s, which has an excerpt from the first Ormandy Philadelphia Scheherazade. I don’t have the lp, only the cover; I don’t know the catalog number. The cover is designed by “monogram”. Monogram designed a large number of Columbia lps in the early 1950s, usually in collaboration with an illustrator. I know nothing at all about monogram, and would appreciate hearing from anybody who does.
