    Pluto in use by Karel Vaca for his poster design for Víkend bez rodičů (“A weekend without parents”). This Czechoslovakian movie from 1982 was directed by Jiří Hanibal, starring Marcel Vašinka, Milena Steinmasslová, and Vladimír Menšík.

    The image is borrowed from Albrecht Dürer’s Adam and Eve (1507), with added underwear (never trust a fig leaf) and an enlarged and partly peeled apple. Pluto is used in all caps, with partly colored letter parts to reinforce the dimensional look. The acute accent in “víkend” is just a thin flat line, as it was commonly done with DIY diacritics on Czechoslovak posters and beyond. I don’t know if the extrabold shaded letters in the speech balloon are from a typeface or custom drawn. Black Body is close, but no cigar.
