    Billy Swan’s debut album I Can Help from 1974, featuring the hit single of the same name.

    Cover design by Bill Barnes and Julie Holiner, with photography by Ken Kim. The typeface is Blimp C (solid), designed by Seymour Chwast for Photo-Lettering in the late 1960s. The text on the sticker is in caps from an extrabold style of Futura, likely available only in phototype. Note the use of sign painters’ quotes.
