Vintage Sheet Music Photography and Graphic Design

Sheet music covers give us over the years, a glimpse of both the music and the art of a given era.

1925, Love Dreams

1926, My Cutey's Due At Two To Two

1930, Please Don't Talk About Me When I'm Gone

1936, The Great Ziegfeld

1939, Pinocchio

1946, Gypsy

1952, The GlowWorm. This song was originally copyrighted in 1902, but this cover is of the 'Modern Version'.

!954, Pagnini Variations. Note the early modern graphic art. Calder-esque, perhaps.


  1. i so love the Gypsy one, and the glowing sun (or moon, bright red?)

    and i forgot to mention how brilliant the title of your blog is, Yesterday's Myth, so fitting and so beautiful

  2. Thanks, Roxana. Stay tuned, lots more to come!
