Philip Cohran & The Artistic Heritage Ensemble - On The Beach
A local Chicago record label and record shop was given permission to reissue the rare and sought after avante-garde jazz LP 'On The Beach'; recorded live at the 63rd St Beach House on Chicago's South Side in 1967. Philip Cohran and the Artistic Heritage Ensemble deliver an amazing performance captured on a 2-track portable recorder and spread over a 2 LP album.

I was loaned a copy of the obscure original pressing of the album and proceeded to scan in the images and perform forensic typographical research to determine exactly what fonts were used on the first private pressing of the LP. I recreated the Philip Cohran logo (seen in blue on the cover) in Illustrator. The layout is nearly identical to the initial release down to the letter spacing and typos.
