MAAS Classical Record Covers

Here are a couple record covers I found. The illustration work is great. They are signed “MAAS” but I wasn’t able to identify this designer.

I dug some information from the web pointing at a designer named George Maas from a book cover I saw. I also found another record cover designed by George Mass but it’s a different style. Here are some links:

1. Check this book covers on Flickr » by The Crossett Library Bennington College
2. This record cover » on Flickr with the same signature with reference to George Maas. Mine doesn’t say a thing on the back.
3. Another record cover »
4. This Bio » on
5. This article on Billboard Magazine ». Bottom right of page 33.
6. This book » probably has some info on him.

Is this him? You be the judge. Might not be him but they are still cool.

  1. George Maas did many incredible covers for Mercury Records in the early to late 50s and into the early 1960s. I know little about him but I have collected many of his album covers and they are wonderful.

  2. Hi Aurora, how fun to hear from you and I would definitely like to think of some questions to ask you. I am a great admirer of Maas’s work and I’m sure we can all learn a bit more about him. I will contact you!
