    Studio in use for the cover of Dawn In A Duck Blind. A Guide to the Calls of Waterfowl. The 10″ record was released by Cornell University Records, a division of Cornell University Press.

    Dolf Overbeek’s typeface was first issued by the Amsterdam Type Foundry in 1946. With its organic strokes, it goes well together with the reed and blades. The subtitle proves that Studio looks good in all-caps settings, too. Note how some words are subtly scaled down to let the important ones come to the fore. The cover illustration is by William C. Dilger (1923–2015), director of research at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and author of Finding Out About Birds, The Behaviour of Lovebirds, and The Loss of Teeth in Birds, among many other publications.

    A record of the same title was issued with a different cover design by Houghton Mifflin in 1963. That edition came with a 28-page book with “identification drawings by Roger Tory Peterson, numerous color photos, black-and-white photos, waterfowl descriptions, and more. […] One side has narration of various waterfowl heard in duck blind at dawn, and the other side being straight mixture of waterfowl sounds.”
