Classic Font ID

Can anyone tell me what classic looking font is used in this image?

Also, if anyone can suggest any similar fonts then that would also be good to know.

Thanks.

It looks quite similar to this one:

Is it the same font? If not then this one would also be good to identify.

Thanks.

could be a customised version of 'neutraface'? Designed by Christian Schwartz.

For the first one, they said it's custom: http://typophile.com/node/101583

@farong Good spot. I think that's been about the closest I've come across. It's given me something to start from in looking for similar fonts too. Cantilever seems to be a match. Thanks!

@Ryuk Ah ha! So it is! I didn't realise someone asked a similar question so recently. That's good to know, thanks. I think @farong was right in it being a customised version of—or at least heavily based on—Neutraface. It's a fantastic font.

For anyone else looking for similar alternatives:

- Futura
- Relay
- Nobel
- Kabel

Are all fairly similar geometric fonts but not quite as nice as Neutraface in my opinion. In addition, Brandon Grotesque is also very nice but a bit softer.

Thanks guys.
