    Bent Fabric was the moniker of Danish composer Bent Fabricius-Bjerr (born 1924). He published a range of records that would often have an animal reference in their title: The Happy Puppy (1962), Alley Cat (1962), Never Tease Tigers (1967), Operation Lovebirds (1967).

    The cover of his Drunken Penguin album pairs a penguin with two stacked lines of lettering derived of Futura Black. Most letter shapes are pretty much identical to the typeface, but a bit more plump – or drunk?
