Kaleidoscope Eyes

To celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of the Beatles’ Sgt Pepper LP, the BBC broadcast Sgt Pepper’s Musical Revolution, in which composer Howard Goodall explains why the album is still considered innovative, even after half a century.

The title, captions and credits for the show made full use of the three K-Type Sgt Peppers fonts which were based on the original bass drum capitals painted by fairground artist, Joe Ephgrave. Two of the fonts, Sgt Peppers Outline and Sgt Peppers Outline Fill, are all capitals with matching spacing and kerning that can be overlapped for bicolor effects and for creating lookalike drums. The Sgt Peppers Lonely Hearts Club font includes a newly designed lowercase and European accented characters.
