    We Want Miles is a double album with recordings from Boston, New York and Tokyo, by jazz trumpeter Miles Davis, released by Columbia Records in 1982. Cover photo: Yoshihisa Yoneda.

    The W/W image rhyme is completed by changing Miles’ M for a flipped W. The cover type was manually slanted (and made more bold?). It is derived from a bold extended style of one of the early-20th century grotesques from Germany, probably Aurora-Grotesk (Annonce) or Venus.

    The red text on the back was set in a yet unidentified geometric sans serif with a straight-legged M.
