A VERY detailed work-in-progress study of classical microgroove labels
is Labelography by Peter Fulop of Mikrokosmos. Details are available at
http://mikrokosmos.com/labelography.html It is based on loose-leaf
plastic sheets with cards that you insert which enables updating and
expansion as more details are developed. Label variations are a major
aspect of this project, with details that most overlook. The fact that
this is expensive shows that it might be best to do projects like this
on-line, but such a thing was not possible when Peter began this
project, and I suppose that this is the reason he has not been
proceeding as rapidly as he original envisioned.
78 labels are more covered in print with separate books on Victor by
Michael Sherman and Columbia by Sherman Kurt Nauck, and American Record
Labels and Companies (ARLIE) which is being revised by Allen Sutton and
Kurt Nauck. Of course there are many on-line sites with hundreds of
color label pictures.

Has anyone ever published a comprehensive definitive book of label
pictures/scans IN COLOR for LP's or 45's?
I am working on my page,
and plan to add 60+ more different Wisconsin based and other labels
from my collection of Wisconsin artist 45's. I'm just curious if someone
has ever published such a resource like this before. None of the books I
own or have seen have large numbers of color pictures of labels.
