1950s Alvin Lustig album cover design – Vivaldi

vivaldi album cover design

Classical album covers from 1954

Finnish illustrator Elina Minn captured these lovely record cover specimens designed for the Haydn Society by Alvin Lustig hiding in her Grandmother’s vinyl collection. I really like the colors of the album on the right. Every time I look at it, it reminds me of this Alexander Girard nativity poster.

After you check out the Vivaldi covers, wander down to Elina’s website. Plenty of great illustration and collage work to look at.

Many thanks to Gina Federico for sending this my way and Kind Company who designed the Alvin Lustig website, for alerting us that these album covers are the work of designer Alvin Lustig.

being an illustrator – i’m partial to the classic covers
that DAVID STONE MARTIN illustrated; his artwork
is half of the albums worth!
BUT thanx for showing these!
