    Poster for the Czechoslovakian release of In God We Tru$t (1980), a biting religious satire starring Marty Feldman, Andy Kaufman, Louise Lasser and Peter Boyle.

    Karel Vaca once more relies on the device of repetition/duplication. This time it’s the profile of Feldman in his role as Brother Ambrose. It’s shown twice with a coarse halftone effect, supplemented with an angel and devil’s horns respectively, hinting at his struggle with temptation.

    The title is shown in reversed caps based on Fino (Bold?), an early-1970s Letraset typeface by Australian designer Maurice Schlesinger.
