This album’s back cover has some very fun three-dimensional typesetting as well, although I can’t seem to find any leads on either face in use here:
Interesting! I wonder if the Latin might be a version/precursor of Saracen?
The Latin is definitely Saracen. Dig the bottom terminal on the C in XTC. This was 1996, and the Proteus fonts had been out for several years IIRC.
The Proteus series had been used in Rolling Stone already. Not sure if the fonts were officially released for general licensing before 1996. The “Familiar Faces” ad by the Hoefler Type Foundry in U&lc Vol. 23 No. 1 from Summer 1996 suggests that they were “now available for the first time ever”.
