    A bicolor use of Mierop Ginger Snap on the cover of Sausalito Heliport. Recorded with her backing band the Gentle Reign and released in 1969, it’s the final album by Gale Garnett (b. 1942) who later devoted herself to writing and acting.

    The cover design by Lloyd Ziff superimposes a photo of the Golden Gate Bridge by Bruce Steinberg with a band portrait taken at Sausalito Heliport. Ginger Snap is used in its shaded style; once with red letterforms and a yellow shade, and once with reversed colors for the title. Craig Mierop’s typeface had been released just earlier that year, and also appeared on the cover of the Greatest Hits album by Californian band Country Joe & The Fish. In this use, the geometric display face with its slot and drill hole counters appears at a size that is maybe a tad too small to really shine.
