    Futuristic Dragon is the eleventh studio album by English glam rock band T. Rex, released on 30 January 1976 by EMI Records with cover art by George Underwood. The illustration depicts a winged Marc Bolan with lance and shield, riding a flying dragon against the full moon.

    The typography uses Tintoretto. Originally issued by German type foundry Schelter & Giesecke in 1894, the shaded style with several peculiar medieval-looking letterforms was revived in 1971 by Letraset. Tintoretto here is used with a green-to-white gradient fill, set on a curve.
