    Pacifica in (early?) use on the cover of a record with Easy Listening/Pacific music by American arranger, conductor and songwriter George Cates (1911–2002), released on Ranwood Records in 1968. The titles are set in caps from Alternate Gothic 3. For the Ranwood logo, see the dedicated post. Design/photography by Studio Five.

    Pacifica is an informal boxy sans with flared stems, curly terminals, and biform alternates. It’s shown in a Lettergraphics catalog from 1968.
