One of my correspondents asks if Witt worked with Steinweiss. I don’t think so. They both designed for Remington at the same time, but I don’t have any reason to think it was together. I just think Witt was heavily influenced by Steinweiss. Witt is sort of a cut-rate Steinweiss – working only on cheap labels (except Cook I think was a real company) with limited color availability. And achieving a lot with so little, even if his work was derivative of Steinweiss’.
