(x) Cover of the first edition of Peter S. Beagle's "The Last Unicorn" - Kismet (Spiral) {Arun (Stephen)}

There is a typeface used for the first edition of Beagle's The Last Unicorn that I absolutely adore. I actually came across its name by pure luck while browsing a book on graphic design, but have since forgotten its name. Can anyone help?

A slightly different version was digitized by Richard Beatty as Spiral. It's available with two sets of caps.

Believe it or not, in the middle of the night I suddenly remembered "Kismet!" I felt rather dumb for wasting people's time with the post. But Spiral is new to me, and, at first blush, seems to be more complete than Kismet, what with slashes and other punctuation fully integrated into the design. Very interesting, thanks!
