A flyer for a Halloween Party for the Cartoon/Fantasy Organization, with cover art by Christy Curphey.

The front uses ransom note-style typography for “Halloween Party”, using glyphs from ITC Garamond Bold Compressed, Folio Extra Bold, Helvetica Light, Helvetica Condensed Bold, and Times New Roman. The latter is also used for the organization name, here in its italic equivalent.

The typed-out text is in Prestige Elite, with the exception of the small map, which appears to be set in Courier, likely performed with an IBM Selectric.

The back, on the other hand, is largely composed in Macintosh fonts; much of the text shown here is in Geneva, with the names of the characters in Chicago and the show name in a related Bold Shadowed style. The party organizers are in the aforementioned Prestige Elite, and “The gang’s all here!” is in an all-caps Helvetica Bold.
