    First released in 1966, this is the Sundazed issue from 2017, featuring RCA Studios versions of tracks. While there are various versions of Gothic around, this was digitized from the Homage to the Alphabet sample shown as Winchester. Inserat Grotesk was digitized from a vintage print sample from a specimen book (cross-listed as Aurora Condensed).

      John, I’ll be honest!

      I was almost recently tricked by one of your designs!

      You do brilliant homages!

      Agreed! For reference, here’s the original Columbia release from 1966.
