    An interesting pairing of typefaces on the cover of this French/Benelux release of this album by Kimio Eto. The design uses the Normandia Open style, with its distinct uppercase K design. The smaller type for the subtitle of the record is set in Filmotype Ginger, a nice condensed geometric sans from the 1950s. The earlier US and UK releases of this record, unfortunately, used Novel Open, in a very stereotypical fashion, typical of the time.
