'Jacksonmania'

I don't have any particular reason or question in this post, I'm only writing it because I find it interesting that here in the Algarve, Portugal, there exist so many signs and ads from the 70s and 80s which use the 'fancy' font Jackson MN.

In the following pictures I captured some of the places where I've seen it, but I remember at least four more, in the north of Portugal, suggesting this 'mania' was not only in one or two design shops. Personally, I have to say that I find it quite unique, although I wouldn't really use it in any of the things I do.
