    These Christmas EPs use a few unique display faces like Burko, Hogarth, and Advertisers Gothic, to name few. The secondary typeface for all issues is Univers (IBM Selectric version) in regular and condensed styles.

    Mr. Pickwick was a standalone children’s music imprint of Pickwick Records, from approximately 1964 until 1980. The blackletter used for the Mr. Pickwick logo as well as for the 39¢ price tag is Cloister Black.

    Most illustrations by Ben Mahan.
