    Have a Nice Day was Roxette’s last album of the 20th century. It was recorded at El Cortijo Studios in Marbella and at Polar Studios, Cosmos Studios and Atlantis Studios in Stockholm between January and October 1998.

    The album was released worldwide except the U.S.A. where Roxette still did not have a record contract at the time of the album release.

    When the album was to be released in the Middle East the cover of the album had to be changed before it could be distributed to the record stores. For religious reasons the naked children had to be removed from the cover and therefore a special edition of the sleeve was made.

    Have a Nice Day was released on vinyl in 2019 for the 20th anniversary.

    The Roxette logo is hand-made by Karl-Magnus. There is a matching font you can find online, but it’s fanmade, based on the album art.

    1. Caslon’s Perspective is also known as Mansfield in the book Phillips’ Old Fashioned Type from 1945.

    2. Interesting, thanks!

      There is also a Mansfield designed by John West for Marder, Luse & Co. in 1889, but that’s an unrelated design.
