My pal Loukas brought this fantastic Flickr set to my attention today. Jubru on Flickr has scanned and uploaded a bunch of oldschool cassette inserts by BASF, Scotch, Memorex and many more. Lots of great examples of bold linework and oversized typography, and looks like Avante Guarde was the typeface choice of tape insert designers.

Check out the Tape cassette insert stream for the full selection.
