    Chevalier is the typeface used for Tonight I’m Yours. Eleven years after his debut album, this was Rod Stewart’s thirteenth solo record. The album contained a hit single by the same name [Discogs], and was released on the Latin American market with translated song titles as Esta Noche Soy Tuyo. The cover was designed under art direction of Richard Seireeni. The single record credits David Larkham for the sleeve design. The portrait of Rod Stewart, looking into a setting sun with pursed lips, is by photographer Raul Vega.

    Chevalier was probably released shortly before. It’s shown in the 1980 VGC Typositor catalog as a VGC original. The designer is unknown. (If you have info on that, please let us know!) There are numerous digitizations under various names, see the typeface page for details.
