    Milton Glaser’s poster for an Easter Sunday concert by American gospel singer Mahalia Jackson (1911–1972) was printed in two versions — one facing right and the other facing left — so that the two could be shown side-by-side to create a rainbow.

    1. I had found that Glaser’s Baby Teeth got digitized in the 1990s as OPTIBuford by Castcraft in the early 1990s.

    2. Hi Jay, yes, that’s correct. There are several digital interpretations of Baby Teeth. As we state on the typeface page, there’s no official digital version, though. I’ve removed the link, as that website includes many unauthorized digitizations.

    3. You’re right, Flo.
