    West Cooper Nouveau Swash Bold with shadow and interlinear ligatures, on the cover of an album by the Olympia Brass Band, recorded in Berlin on 4 August 1968 and released in 1969 on 77 Records, London. The jazz brass band from New Orleans had been revived under the historical name by saxophonist Harold Dejan in 1958. Dejan (1909–2002) led the band until shortly before his death.

    The band had a notable part in the 1973 James Bond movie Live and Let Die where they lead a funeral march for a victim assassinated during the march.

    Sleeve design by Stuart McMillan, with photography by Doug Dobell.
