    Beethoven’s Symphony No. 7 as recorded by the Vienna Tonkünstler Symphony Orchestra in Europe, released on Plymouth Records (P 12–6) probably sometime in the early 1950s. [More info on Discogs]

    The cover design by Curt John Witt pairs Ultra Bodoni Extra Condensed with a bold weight from Tempo. The former was originally issued by ATF in the early 1930s. Richard Lipton’s FB Bodoni is a revival and expansion. The latter debuted in the 1930s, too, as Ludlow’s response to Futura. There is no proper digital version of Tempo.
