    Roman caps for Roman Spectacular, an album by American piano-accordionist, arranger, composer Charles Magnante (1905–1986). Originally released in 1957 with a different cover design, this is a reissue from 1966, issued by Grand Award Records as GA 205 SD. The typeface is Max Caflisch’s open Columna, here used with a color fill.

    The photograph shows a variety of Italian ephemera, including a Lire banknote, coins, and postage stamps, an Alitalia leaflet, a train ticket, and a Dolomites travel map, labels for martini and cheese, a restaurant menu, and a postcard showing the Foro Romano. “Turandot” as seen on the Teatro alla Scala handbill is set in a typeface that was known under various names, including Viktoria.
