    In 1973, Sphere Science Fiction re-issued a few of Brian Aldiss’ books with a consistent design for the author name featuring Marvin for the uppercase A and Blippo Black for the rest of the name in lowercase (Marvin is uppercase only).

    The title of the book is twice in Blippo Bold (note the closed shapes for the R, P and A and alternate e). For Cryptozoic, however, Blippo has been replaced by Helvetica.
