What is your favourite Queen typo ?

I love the way the word "QUEEN" is written on Queen II and The Miracle and I hate the AKOM typo and the MIH typo

My favorite Typeface? oh, that's entirely another question.

Strange how people can get feelings of hate about something so trivial.

Whooooaaaah! Teasing does not equal hate, Rien. Only injecting some humor to show how it made me giggle as I read it.

Funny how some people are humorless illiterates, though.

"Time -- The Ablum" (as misspelled on the spine of the LP).
And, on my promo copy of SHA..."Brighten Rock".
OYYYYY!!!
(There's a copy on Ebay just like it if you'd like to view the typo!)

I really hated the MIH/Queen Rocks era...all the typefaces had that generic look, like someone just typed them on a computer, with the changing hues of color that seemed a couple years out of style IMHO.

I saw someone type Queen as "Quenn" like six times in one paragraph... I think that would have to be my favorite. ;)

I like it on the Hot Space album, very simple, but elegant. And on my ANATO vynil too. And Queen/Queen II is great also.


I LOVE QUEEN!
