    Prisma on the cover of Learn to Hustle from 1976. Designed by Rudolf Koch as a display companion to Kabel and first cast by the Klingspor foundry in 1930, Prisma is the trailblazer of modern multiline typefaces. It saw a reappraisal in the late 1960s and 1970s, spawning new interpretations including ITC Neon, Futura Prisma & Prisma Graphic, Bauhaus Prisma & Prisma Bauhaus.

    It’s easy! It’s fun! Great for parties! You can do the Hustle, Bus Stop, Latin Hustle, The Walk and the Fox Trot. […] Instructions by Jeff & Jack Shelley

    The same album was also marketed under the titel Learn Disco Dancing. Photography by Dick Kranzler. Groove Sound was a short-lived sublabel of MCA Records.

    1. See also Do the Hustle from the same year. The covers for that series use ITC Neon, a reinterpretation of Prisma with rounded and partly connected lines that resemble neon tubes.
