    The Japanese version of Ginger Baker’s Air Force’s cover of “Man Of Constant Sorrow” was manufactured by Nippon Grammophon Co., Ltd. The ultrawide technoid letterforms are from a film typeface of unclear origin. It appeared as Astrid in a Lettergraphics catalog from 1968. Ten years later, Castcraft listed it as “Aggie (similar to Astrid Solid)”. This name is also the one used for the digitally available versions, OPTI Aggie Solid and URW Aggie.
