I think the tragedy/comedy masks probably was Alan Fletcher I seem to think it once appeared in an article of favourite designs which were rejected.

And it's great to be able to click on the link to Richard Bird and see some of his posters. Where it get's freaky is I artworked the lettering for Richard III in my job before Henrion's, using a trendy-at-the-time Letragraphica face. So maybe I was just everyone's artworker at that time.

I'm enjoying this thread, David. (I was about to say history lesson, but that would just be rude.) You clearly need to track down more old friends.
