    Released in 1968 or 1969, Hello World was the only album by rock band Today’s People. The cover was designed by illustrator and Cooper Union graduate Sanford “Sandy” Hoffman, who passed away in 2017 at age 80.

    The typography combines three decorated typefaces by Photo-Lettering, Inc.: Seymour Chwast’s Blimp A (with stripe gradient); Charles Papirtis’ Washington, a stars-and-stripes variation of Broadway; and the uncredited Land of the Free, another face from PLINC’s patriotic department — it’s a star-spangled adaptation of Rudolf Koch’s Prisma.
