    1. The band name is rendered in an inline version of Kabel. It could be either a custom modification or a pre-digital font. The album’s title is set in an old Filmotype face named Lady Script, which apparently goes back to an alphabet designed by Charles Bluemlein in the 1940s. Digital versions include Liana (ParaType) and Mr Lackboughs (Sudtipos).

    2. Well done yet again Florian! Awesome detective work.
