I desperately need to find out which font is used in this logo, since I couldn't find and contact original designer who did this. I would appreciate your help.
News 701 by Bitstream:
Maybe Borgis Pro form RMU
News 701 is Bitstreams version of Ionic No. 5 - and is as close as my guess.
Ionic No. 5 designed by Chauncey H. Griffith for Linotype in 1922
Other names and versions of Ionic include Aurora BT (also called News 706 BT by Jackson Burke, Bitstream), Imperial BT, Corona LT, News 705 BT (which is Bitstream's Corona), Nimrod MT, Clarion MT. Source: Luc Devroye's Ionic (newspaper) typefaces page. http://luc.devroye.org/fonts-50774.html which is based on a comparison by Uli Stiehl.
Thank you very much guys!!! You made me really happy. Wish I could take you all to Darby's Pub and have a beer or two with y'all.
Have a great weekend! :)
Previous specimen Ionic No. 5 looks thicker than it should for the font. Try this
Thank you, Don! I will consider that too.
I think it’s Sentinel.
Good find Akira. I don't see any major conflict between the image for ID [at top] and a test specimen of Sentinel Medium [at bottom].
Good find Akira - Sentinel Book may be exact Don if medium looks a bit thick -
Akira is correct, the serifs on News 701 are graduated, on the sample they are truely slab.
Sentinal by H&FJ it is.
