    For Alanis Morissette’s success album Jagged Little Pill (1995), designer Thomas Recchion conceived a fluid design that integrates David Rakowski’s typewriter font Harting (1992) with portraits of Morissette by John Patrick Salisbury. When the album was re-released ten years later, Harting was replaced by Erik van Blokland’s Trixie (1991).

    Jagged Little Pill is the third studio album, and international debut, by Canadian singer Alanis Morissette, released in 1995 through Maverick. It was her first album to be released worldwide as her first two albums were released only in her native Canada. Jagged Little Pill topped the charts in ten countries; with sales of over 33 million units worldwide, it is one of the best-selling albums of all time. — Wikipedia

    A few months after the acoustic version, a deluxe 4-disc collector's edition was released that includes the original album, the acoustic album plus demos and live recordings. It combines Harting for Morissette’s name with FF Trixie for the title.
