    Cover design by Viceroy, using a photograph by Bob Gomel. The artist’s name is set in caps from Franklin Gothic Extra Condensed, in alternating glyph colors (cf. Marvin Israel’s cover for the self-titled album from 1957). The font used for the title is Echo, a contoured and shaded grotesque designed by Peter Bell and issued by Stephenson Blake in 1956.
