    A fresh 1990s poster using “old” type. The top line uses Morris Fuller Benton’s Bank Gothic (ATF 1930); headliners, location and address are set in another low contrast family with blocky caps: ITC Bolt by Ronné Bonder and Tom Carnase (1970). Time, price and presale addresses use Horatio (a version of Harry, 1966) designed by Bob Newman for Letraset in 1971.

    The Koninklijke Bibliotheek website lists headliners Schoolly-D from Philadelphia and his DJ Kid Swift (listen to an hour of Kid Swift from 1997) as the designers of the poster – not an expected credit, but I haven’t found better information yet.
