    Sviatoslav Richter plays Tchaikovsky’s Grand Sonata Op. 37 and Schumann’s Humoreske Op. 20. Recorded by Melodiya in the U.S.S.R. This is the sleeve for the Columbia Records release from 1979.

    Art direction by Henrietta Condak. Cover illustration by Robert Weaver. Glaser Stencil is used in two of its three weights. Judging from the two different forms for ‘R’, the big bold line is probably hand-lettered.

    Isn’t it funny? All it needs is tilting the baseline, and Glaser Stencil suddenly assumes a Russian contructivist look. Granted, having Tchaikovsky’s name in there helps, too.

    The liner notes are set in three columns that are shaped like the white keys of a piano.
