Can someone name that font?
It looks very close to Bonn Caps (Bold) an old Font Bureau font  but I don't know if it's still available.
Might be hand lettered.
Looks alot like Michael Schwab's wonderful lettering.
I think it is hand done - that would fit the poster model.
I agree with Bob. Looks like poster design to me.
I agree Mike. This would fit right in with his posters.
And here it is!
Bingo! Thanks for finding it, Don.
And thanks Mike for the reminder about lettering master Michael Schwab. This is a perfect case of where lettering with it's subtle variations trumps a font with its precision or artificial grunge/rugged treatment.
As for fonts, the closest to the GARLIC letters is Neville Brody's orphan font, Bonn Caps Bold, found by Fivos. To make something similar from a legitimate source we are struck with something like Arquitecta Black.
I should have walked into my wife's office after I looked at the Garlic Poster- she has had this poster on her wall for years.
