    German release of Ginger Baker’s Air Force’s cover of “Man Of Constant Sorrow” (1970). The typography brings together two faces by Photo-Lettering; Mierop Ginger Snap (1969; LTypI alert!) and Davison Arabesque (1968). Stylistically, the extruded geometric Art Deco letters with cookie-cutter counters and the amorphous psychedelic caps with reversed contrast don’t go well together; just as the orange is not the best complement to the red, white and blue from the RAF roundel. Printed by Gebrüder Jänecke in Hanover, Germany.
