The pile of assorted accents and punctuation used in “Expressions” as a typographic equivalent of cursing appears to be taken directly from a specimen for Pistilli Roman, designed by Herb Lubalin and used to announce the International Type Face Competition sponsored by the Visual Graphics Corporation in 1965. Here’s the announcement as shown in Graphis No. 121.
Pistilli’s punctuation was again prominently featured on the cover of the 1977 reprint of You Have A Point There: A Guide to Punctuation and its Allies.
