    Picture sleeves for “Dragonfly”

    a song written by British rock musician Danny Kirwan with lyrics taken from a poem by Welsh poet W. H. Davies. It was originally recorded by Kirwan’s band Fleetwood Mac in 1970, and became the first UK single released by the band after the departure of their frontman Peter Green. It was also their first single with Christine McVie as a full member of the group. By the time the song had been released, guitarist Jeremy Spencer had left the band.

    The German version shown at the top pairs a chromatic use of Thorne Shaded with Countdown. The Dutch release (below) has Calypso and Bookman Italic with swashes.
