    Phillip Meggs’ History of Graphic Design claims this poster was published around 1960, but also says Chwast Blimp was published in 1970. Ten years is a long time. Something is off — probably the poster date — as Garland performed at Lincoln Center on this date in 1968. MoMA confirms the 1968 date.

    The other type is also a puzzle: mostly Helvetica, but with an upside-down ‘S’ and a random straight-legged (Standard?) ‘R’ stuck in there.
