Xenon – “Xenon Opera” single cover

This is pure gold!
Great find! Most innovative use of Yagi I’ve seen. I wish they were more considerate about where the nodes are placed. Spacing wise, “OPERA” is much more effective than “XENON”.
Right – it looks as if the designers simply sealed off every loose end with a node and were so busy with that idea that they forgot about the spacing.
I just remembered that the Yagi series included a ready-made solid companion style to Yagi Link Double, named Yagi Link Light. I’ve seen it in phototype catalogs by Lettergraphics (USA) and Typeshop (Germany). It wasn’t as widely available as the biline variant, which was adopted for dry transfer lettering by Letraset. Still, it could be that this is the style that was used here.
Ah, that makes sense. You reminded me that it’s past time I took those separate FotoStar scans and collated them into a single Yagi family image. So here it is.
