chorus.jpgDuke University currently has an online gallery of historic sheet music covers from 1850’s – 1920’s. Some of the songs' titles are hilarious, but more striking is the craft shown in the typography. More than a few of them are simply amazing and the gallery as a whole is worth slacking off for an afternoon or two. What a resource.
