Knowing about this album and its self-referential type choice would have earned you big points in the 2011 quiz at Berlin’s Typostammtisch!
As a side note, the new versions of TNR, shipping with new operating systems such as Windows 10, have true small caps, along with swashes and other OpenType features. All it takes is software that can access them, like MS Word can’t.
This happened under everyone’s radar. I’m still waiting to see the TNR swashes in the wild…
Thanks, Thiago! Small caps have been available in various digital versions of Times and Times New Roman before, at least for the roman styles. The version included in recent versions of Windows offers small caps for the italics, too.

For those who want to use them but don’t have a current version of Windows, this version is available as Times New Roman OS for general licensing. Judging from MyFonts’ preview, someone must have forgotten to include the (unaccented) swash N.
