    PLINC Halloween in use for Red Garland Live!, a live album by Red Garland (1923–1984), recorded at the Prelude Club, New York, on October 2, 1959, and released on Prestige’s New Jazz label in 1965.

    The design is by Don Schlitten, with cover art that appears to be an uncredited appropriation of Bridget Riley’s Op Art, see her Fall painting from 1963 (cf. this book cover from 1966).

    Fonts In Use reader Jay Mellor recently found out that Halloween is an adaptation of an alphabet by lettering artist A. Bardi, reproduced as La Boule in Publicité Vignettes Lettres Chiffres Monogrammes et Rehauts Modernes (Les Editions Guérinet, Paris, 1931). It was adopted by Photo-Lettering before 1960.
