    An early appearance of Blippo Black, used in all caps for an ad for Puerto Rican Rum. Blippo Black was drawn by Joe Taylor and added to FotoStar’s Facsimile Fonts library in 1969. The design was admittedly inspired by David L. Burke’s Burko, which was eventually available in a heavy weight named Gurpo, too.
