News that David Sedaris is releasing his latest audiobook as a vinyl record inspired me to pull these amazing old Caedmon spoken word LPs off the shelf.
Caedmon Records specialized in spoken word recordings and put out records by many significant authors: Dylan Thomas, T.S. Eliot, e.e. cummings, Robert Frost, Ernest Hemingway, etc. They also issued children's records, recordings of theater performances, and Vincent Price reading Percy Shelly. Their slogan was: A Third Dimension for the Printed Page. The company was sold to Harper Collins in the 1980s and is now Caedmon Audio.
Don't know much else about this company, especially from the design end—even the internet appears lacking in information. If these covers are any indication of the quality design work that went on, there's a story to be told. Anyone know anything?
