the end of an era – 15 years of steinwiss designs for columbia


these are not the last steinweiss designs on columbia that I will be posting. I still have to do the OL and SL series ones – soundtracks and operas. But these are the last chronologically. these are mid 1950s, and his first designs were in 1939, so its 15 years of work. Steinweiss continued to design record covers until the early 1970s, but there are no more signed ones on columbia after these. some of these are surprising designs, I would not have recognize them as steinweiss without the signature, especially ML4747. And th last one, Kismet, is not signed but I am almost certain that steinweiss designed it around the al hirschfeld drawing.
