    Women of Wonder (4867) is a science fiction compilation of one poem and twelve short stories “by women about women”, edited by Pamela Sargent and first published in 1974. Penguin Science Fiction has a list of the contents. This is Penguin’s paperback edition from July 1978, featuring a cover illustration by Candy Amsden.

    The title typeface is Éclair. The bold roman with the distinctive horizontal hatching was designed by Maximilien Vox (best known for devising the VOX-ATypI classification) and first cast by Deberny & Peignot in 1935. The type might have been specified by David Pelham who was still Penguin’s art director at that time.
