    The title track of Lighthouse’s One Fine Morning album from 1971 was a hit, not only in the band’s home country Canada, but also in the Netherlands. The cover of the Dutch single release by Vertigo Records uses tightly spaced Eurostile Extended for the titles. For the band name, the uncredited designer used ITC Honda’s caps in outline, and arranged them with tight-and-touching spacing. Any interletter space was eliminated by nesting the I into the L and interlocking the T between the two H’s. The square dot on the I is a customization that furthers the concept of compactness – Honda’s dots are round.
