    Christoph Ehbets was not the only designer working for Amiga Records who recognized the display qualities of Forest House. His colleague Klaus Vonderwerth (1936–2016) used the contoured and shaded slab serif, too. This sleeve is for a single by schlager singer Klaus Müller (1943–2000), released in 1965 under his first stage name, Ten Oliver. From 1967 on, he became known as Klaus Sommer.

    Song titles, credits and all other small print is set in several weights from Super-Grotesk, a 1930s sans serif by Arno Drescher that has been nicknamed the GDR’s Futura.
