    An early songs & rarities digital-only compilation by Florida band Jacuzzi Boys. Artwork by the band’s singer/guitarist Gabriel Alcala, a very talented designer, frequently inspired by the Push Pin aesthetic. For the band name, he used Hologram Shadow AKA Baby Curls, a display alphabet designed by Milton Glaser and produced as photostat in 1977. Chances are the actual font in use is Nick Curtis’ Capital Ideas 1 NF (2012), which includes a digital interpretation of Hologram Shadow in its lowercase slots.

    1. Similar to the Baby Curls is Scroll, as seen in a 1973 Jos Neve Lettergreep catalogue below. There could be differences in this typeface design, what do you think?

    2. Yes, Scroll is based on a similar idea, but it’s a different design. My understanding is that it was issued by Photoscript in London sometime between 1970 and 1973. The designer is unknown to me. Below is a glyph set.
