Columbus in all caps on the cover of an album of motets from the 16th and 17th centuries, recorded by the Windsbacher Boys Choir. The typeface was likely chosen for the flourish in its O, which is a handy device for signifying Baroque without having to revert to type styles that were actually used in this period. It helps that this letter occurs no less than five times in the title, in fairly even distribution. For good measure, there’s one equally curling C and one floppy-top A.
For the art, cover designer Burt Goldblatt used a detail from Assumption of the Virgin by Spanish painter Juan de Valdés Leal (1622–1690). The album was released by Mace, a division of Scepter Records specializing in classical music, probably in the mid or late 1960s (catalog number MS 9054).
