Before Antique Olive Nord (ca. 1959), there was Filmotype Ford … and its extended sibling Filmotype Flare (ca. 1953). The extrawide heavyweight can here be seen in a version decorated with snowflakes, on the cover of a Christmas album recorded by Martha Tilton (1915–2006) and “other Great Hollywood Vocal Stars”, released by Tops Records in 1958. The lines in the multicolored bands at the right are set in Lydian Cursive and Venus Extended. Other text like “True High Fidelity!” is hand lettered.
