Two low-contrast geometric sans serifs of contrasting weight, paired for the cover of Choréo-Rythmes, released by Unidisc in 1970. Both the bold Marvin and the thin Premier Lightline were released just the year before, in 1969. The latter is used with two of its not so commonly featured alternates, the uncial-like e and the narrow s.

The Greek-born Michel Christodoulidès and the Spanish-born Francisco Semprun met in Paris and teamed up to compose for film soundtracks and theater. Collector oopswhoops describes the music as abstract piano/percussions tracks with occasional flute and harpsichord. The sleeve was printed by Imprimerie Graphicolor in Nanterre, with a photograph by Colette Masson.
