Henry Grimes Trio “The Call” ESP-DISK #1026 originally released in 1966 reissue 180 gram Vinyl 2021

Tasked with recreating the 1966 album artwork for esp-disk I found myself turning to my knowledge of typographic techniques and hand lettering. The best course of action was to mimic the original typeface digitally and redraw the letterforms since originally the artwork was a letterpress set type process. Reintroducing the back cover artwork and layout into the 21st century included making changes to highlight new information and to remove outdated information that no longer was relevant. The front cover was a high resolution scan of the original photograph that required quite a bit of clean up and photo retouching to resemble how it may of looked right off the presses in 1961.
