    Designed by parent company Victor Records and most likely made in April or May 1939, this promotional poster highlights the single “Sunrise Serenade” backed with “Moonlight Serenade”, Glenn Miller’s theme song, Bluebird record number B-10214, a shellac 78 rpm release.

    It features the 1936 ATF face Kaufmann Bold (“Made by Victor”) as well as Futura Condensed Bold (1930, “Sunrise Serenade”, “Moonlight Serenade”) and Futura Medium and Medium Italic (“On Record No. B-10214”). The “Printed in U.S.A” at the bottom of the white stripe is handwritten.
