Lino & Pasquale Castiglione – Clouds album art
6 Comments on “Lino & Pasquale Castiglione – Clouds album art”
Taranto is a digital incarnation of Domino from 2020. You could notice some of these details in certain glyphs.
Hey Jay and Florian, I finally updated the description text on my website now which mentions that a main source of inspiration for the Taranto font was actually Domino.
Thanks, Chris, looking good! I appreciate that you mention your sources of inspiration.
I just came back to this entry and I found and collated these few various image examples from Discogs which have the same trope in different colours and lablels with Domino. Let me know what you think!
Hi Jay, nice discovery, thanks for sharing! When I first posted this, I didn’t realize it is a series. But yes, it looks like this basic design was used for lots of releases.
From what I’m finding on Discogs, these covers are all related to Flipper Srl Edizioni Musicali, a Roman publisher of library music founded by Romano Di Bari in 1972. Flipper maintained a range of sublabels, several of which used this basic design featuring Domino. The sublabels are differentiated by the secondary typeface used for the name/logo at the bottom, and also by the color:
Canopo uses ITC Ronda Light and the color yellow.
Deneb is in Pinto Shaded and green.
Flirt is in Normalisé Din and blue.
Flower uses Futura Black and pink.
Nuova Idea has Stadio / Global in a bright red or orange.
Octopus has Pump Bold and is mostly purple.
You found examples from each of these sublabels.
In the early 1980s, the same basic design was continued with Roundel instead of Domino.
