Some of that old sheet music has artwork (cartoons/drawings) that's just amazing in its own right, completely apart from the music itself.

I enjoy playing some of those old tunes. Some of it is exceptional. Either exceptionally good, or exceptionally bad. smile

This is from an advertisement for a 1915 piece called Ragging the Scale. The ad appeared on the back page of several other pieces of sheet music from that same era.

I really like this artwork so I spent a little time editing it. After removing the text of the advertisement and cleaning up the graphic, what I ended up with is thisl. You could use it for the background for a sign or an ad or a flyer for anything piano related, and since it started out as a graphic in an early 20th century advertisement it's public domain and everything.

Maybe something that connects the twelve keys in an octave with the twelve days of Christmas? That only counts as half an idea though smile
Doesn't that sound little too like Arnold Schoenberg ?
