The Road to Los Angeles, Black Sparrow Press edition

The digital versions — and probably also the Letraset original — offer a large number of alternates, including the swash ‘L’ and ‘T’ and the ‘o’ with mid-height connector. The only glyph that is presumably a modification by the book cover designer is the ‘g’ with long descender. Other alternates are the ‘o’ with top connector and ‘edns’ with baseline connector, which have been used in final positions here.
In this glyph map, the swash ‘T’ is presented as an alternate ‘I’. It has been encoded in the OpenType versions by ITC/Linotype as such, too. In the Letraset 93 catalog, however, it is shown next to ‘T’.
Thanks, Florian! Corrected my text.
