The album's shrinkwrap, with sticker. Eviscerated open by me. Tiempos and Knockout on the sticker.

It's a joy to see one of my favorite fonts —Tiempos— being used on the packaging of the fantastic new album by one of my favorite bands, Destroyer. The Tiempos is printed in metallic foil on the back, no less! This is the kind of pleasure you can't get from a digital download, especially if you're a font geek like me.

I've used Kris Sowersby's Tiempos from Last Summer.

Besides the sticker on the plastic wrapper above, I've attached examples of the many places where Tiempos is used on the Poison Season packaging.

The lyrics and credits in the liner notes are set in a different font. It appears to beKnockoutfrom Hoefler & Co.
