The William Walton-Bernstein cover is really interesting. It came out in 1952, when Steinweiss was still working with Columbia. It’s a different style from the 1940s–the fractured look of the violin scroll looks more modern, and while the familiar Futura typeface is there, he’s used the very lightest weight, a trend of the time. I own the Lawrence Welk cover and hadn’t thought of Steinweiss, but now I’m looking at it in a new light.
