There are lots of typographies made with circles. But this one gives this album from McCombs an original edge. Geometry is often a sign of conceptualization, especially when it simplifies shapes. It also usually conveys a feel of rigidity. So when it meets handwritting like here, it does conceptualize the expression of the personnality of the writer (supposedly the artist), but with a twist. Even if a bit formal, it's a unusual way to express the musical minimalism of this specific opus of McCombs.
