    Joc Line in use for a series of singles by Slovak pop singer Marcela Laiferová, released in 1974, 1977, and 1979 on Opus Records. The three records use the same front and back cover.

    The typeface was designed by Gabriel Fumanal Martinez, a designer from Barcelona, at the age of 20. It 1973, it was selected as winner in Letraset’s International Typeface Competition. It was released in their Letragraphica range and is shown in the 18 New Type Faces catalog.

    The geometrically constructed unicase letterforms were partly filled with color; once in red and yellow, and once in blue and green. On the back cover, there’s an acute accent inside the letter á. On the front side, however, the uncredited designer used a period to mark this diacritic in the singer’s name.

    Price and catalog number are set in Futura. The bold compressed sans used in all caps for the song titles is the same typeface that was used by Supraphon in 1980 and 1982. It hasn’t been identified yet.
