    Album cover for Basil Kirchin’s Worlds Within Worlds LP on Columbia Records. The typeface is Goudy Ornate aka Ornate Title. It was originally designed in 1931 by Frederic Goudy for Lanston Monotype in capitals only.

    Design by Jill Oxley, the same designer also credited for the Cosmic Eye cover from a year later. It looks like she was also a production and set designer on several British TV shows in the 70s and 80s as well – if it’s the same person.
