“Black Magic Woman” is a song written by British musician Peter Green, which first appeared as a Fleetwood Mac single in various countries in 1968. […] Although not as popular as Santana’s arrangement two years later, [Fleetwood Mac’s version] nevertheless became a fairly popular blues rock hit peaking at No. 37 in the UK Singles Chart. — Wikipedia

This is the sleeve for the Dutch release from 1973. The typography features an early use of Roy Sprong’s Pinto Inline, which was announced by Mecanorma in December 1972 (but might have been available earlier from Rapitype). The title is rendered in Harry [edit: it’s its follower Horatio), with a bouncing baseline.

  1. Are you sure that’s Harry? Horatio has a double-sided lowercase t, which is what I’m seeing here.

  2. Horatio it is. Thanks, Bryson!
