Hand drawn? If so, anything similar?
I recall the design (when the orignal album came out) and I've seen the face before as well, but I'm not near my old pre-digital type books at the moment.
Abbott Old Style
Renamed "Abbey Road" and rejigged (note the R) here
Yep, it's not hand-drawn. It also appears on this album cover, but I'll have to go through a couple of old books to see if I can spot it -- I just can't recall the name of the typeface.
Oops! Thanks Patty! I guess we posted at the same time! :-)
Found on page one (Abb...) of one of those old type books.
Patty... you're FAB!
Patty in the skyyyyyy with diamonds... cooocooocachoo!
Abbey Road is the first album I remember listening to as a kid. I still have my parents old scratched LP. Can't bear to part with it.
Old LPs should never be parted with, scratches or no. :-)
