      The two typefaces used on this sleeve are good examples for the phototype revivalism of the 1970s. Titania was available at that time from Berthold, but was originally released in the early 1900s, by the Haas’sche Schriftgießerei in Switzerland. Uncle Bill also appears in catalogs from Berthold Fototypes. It’s a shaded all-caps version of Binner, which was first issued by ATF in 1899.
