    Camellia in use on the cover of Force Majeure, an album released by the German group Tangerine Dream in 1979. The cover painting is by Monica Froese (1947–2000, here credited as Monique Froese), who provided art and photographs for several records by Tangerine Dream as well as by other bands. Froese used Camellia again for Pinnacles, a solo album by her husband Edgar, issued in 1983. The pre-digital version came with glyphs in two widths. Only the wide ones were used here. The slender all-lowercase face by Tony Wenman was also chosen for a number of recent releases by Tangerine Dream, see e.g. The Sessions I–V (2017–2019) and Recurring Dreams (2019). The small type on the back cover of Force Majeure seems to be Eurostile.
