    Wand is Filmotype’s interpretation of the genre of extrawide low-contrast slab serifs, whose best-known representative is Hellenic Wide. Wand is distinguished by a number of details, like the G with pointed spur, or the kicking R. It was added in 1955 to Filmotype’s range of Flat Serif typefaces. The next year, Alex Steinweiss put it to use in this cover design for an album by Caterina Valente (b. 1931).
