    Typographic sleeve design featuring two faces that were available from Mecanorma for dry-transfer lettering: Gemma, a lowercase-only “Bauhaus” style with contour, a Mecanorma exclusive designed by Nicola Russo, and Pinto Shadow, part of a series drawn by Roy Sprong for Rapitype.

    Dharma’s “Plastic Doll” is an Italo disco track produced by Luciano Ninzatti and Stefano Pulga, originally released by System Music in 1982 (shown below). In 2015, La Discoteca reissued the record in a limited edition of 300 copies. The reissue (shown above) uses the original artwork – despite the fact that both typefaces are not available in digital form.
